Drones in Agriculture Years 7-8
Drones and geospatial technologies are increasingly becoming a part of the toolkit for farmers, graziers and agricultural professionals alongside tractors and traditional agricultural technologies. Drones can monitor plants and animals, plant seeds, deliver precise amounts of chemicals to help deal with pests such as weeds, and even herd animals! Paired with machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), they can provide data to farmers so specific actions can be undertaken to improve plant and animal management.
In Years 7-8, Drones in Agriculture students continue with the STEM
Food and Fibre unit with Digital Technologies embedded throughout, it includes sorting edible plants into categories using dichotomous keys. The unit also introduces pseudocode into their drone coding. Not only does it take a more detailed look at drones in agriculture but it also explores how drones should be safeguarded from cyber threats.

All units of work designed and created by She Maps are linked to the Australian Curriculum across multiple learning areas both inside and outside the STEM-identified subjects. By using these programs you help to equip your students with the necessary STEM skills and knowledge that will enable them to engage with the careers of the future. Working in collaboration with schools we set out to achieve the five strategies of action outlined in the Australian STEM education strategy.
