Start teaching with drones

Drone Incursions

Let us visit your school to teach your students how to fly and code drones.

school drone workshops

Our drone program is a great way to
engage your students!

In our Classroom Drone Essentials program, students become geospatial scientists for the day, are exposed to great role models, learn about unconscious bias, explore applications of drone technology, understand safety and drone regulations, and learn how to fly and code educational microdrones.

For students

Our student incursions give students hands-on experience with drones and they learn how technology can be utilised to support problem-solving. We give every student the opportunity to develop a passion and interest in STEM.

Teachers learning to teach with drones

For teachers

In our teacher professional learning workshops we train teachers on how to deliver our Classroom Drone Essentials incursion content themselves. We build teachers confidence levels and support them in bringing drones into the classroom.

Included with every drone incursion

Equipment

We provide drones, tablets, landing pads, image mats and everything else needed to fly.

Insurance

She Maps is fully insured and our certified instructors operate in line with CASA rules and requirements.

Safety

We take safety seriously. Although our micro drones are considered a low risk drone, we provide all necessary safety gear on the day.

Membership

Each 2.5 hour student incursion and teacher workshop includes 12-month access for one teacher to our online portal of classroom activities and resources.

Content covered in every workshop

How it works

Our drone incursions are a unique education experience for your students, mapped to the Australian Curriculum.

Available anywhere

The She Maps education team is traveling across Australia visiting schools to engage and inspire students – especially girls –  to be open-minded about STEM subjects and careers.

Simply contact us with your preferred incursion date and we will check our availability.

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 8,000 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. 

Risk assessments completed

Our programs have a full risk assessment available, and our Classroom Drone Essentials program is CASA approved.

Book your drone incursion

We take care of everything for your drone incursion. Our She Maps Certified Instructors will bring all the required equipment to run the lesson. Your teachers and students just need to bring their enthusiasm!
