Pippa and Dronie is an illustrated children’s book that takes students on an adventure with scientists and drone professionals, to explore the different ways modern STEM skills are used to gather data, and solve real world challenges. Dronie flies through whale snot to collect DNA samples (urgh yuck, but kinda cool), maps coral on the Great Barrier Reef, and in Kakadu National Park a crocodile even tries to jump up and grab her!
- Create positive perceptions of STEM and Geography.
- Meet real scientists and drone professionals and explore what they do.
- Explore the interactive coding game to go beyond the book.
- Be exposed to great STEM role models and the real world applications of drones.
