Our Drone STEAM Program uses “Airblock” an easy-to-use programmable drone that’s geared to inspire young pilots to dive head first into STEAM education. The drone itself consists of six rotor blades and one master module that links the blades via magnetic connectors in a honeycomb fashion without the use of any tools. Each module is wrapped in a special engineered Styrofoam to protect sensitive instruments from damage during a crash landing.
In this program students will build and develop different drone prototypes based on vehicles that can move on water, land or fly through the air. They will code each of their drones to complete several challenges.
All challenges and coding principles taught in the Drone STEAM Program link to the Australian Curriculum.
