Drones4STEM

We facilitate and conduct hands-on drone technology school workshops and holiday camps for Grades 3 to 11. The programs are designed to stimulate the interest of maths and science in students through building, coding and flying drones. We teach pupils on the basics of building a drone from scratch, coding and the requisite skills for piloting and landing an unmanned aerial vehicle in their respective schools. Our program provides skills useful for future employment or business creation. We practically and theoretically prepare pupils for aviation, aerospace, robotics, artificial intelligence and aeronautics careers through unmanned autonomous vehicles.
