Drone experiences are a great way to
engage your students!

They become geospatial scientists for the day, are exposed to great role models, we challenge their unconscious bias, explore applications of drone technology, understand safety and drone regulations, as well as learn how to fly and code educational microdrones.

How it works

Our drone incursions are a unique education experience for your students.

Available anywhere

Our She Maps Certified Instructors are passionate educators who are happy to travel across Australia or anywhere around the world if it means they can engage and inspire students to pursue a career in the geospatial and drone industries. 

How does the day run?

All we need is a large classroom or hall, as we fly the microdrones indoors.  Our Classroom Drone Essentials incursion is 2.5 hours long with a maximum of 30 students per session. We can facilitate two 2.5 hours sessions in a typical school day.  We bring all the equipment, schools just need to provide the space.

Tailored to your school curriculum

Our Classroom Drone Essentials incursion has been taught to over 7,500 students and teachers, and counting. It provides the foundational skills your students need to learn to fly and code microdrones. Please talk to us if you’d like us to include specific content that is relevant to the students current studies.
