New for schools: Drone Control

Yes, that’s right. From steering wheelchairs and cars to turning on lights to dialing mobile phone numbers with your thoughts … and now this!

In NSW from February, every school incursion for years 7-10 + Biology (term 4) will include one person per group nominated to fly our special indoor drone.

Now this isn’t easy and it takes ‘Theta’ control that most struggle with. We’ll admit, we’ve crashed it several times.

It must be flown indoors as if not it will end up in New Zealand, yet the drone has a wire cage surround so that students can catch it easily and safely. It’s safe, fun and fairly impossible to break (we hope).

Only one student per group will have a turn and they’ll need to show some skill at Theta control during other activities. If it survives term 1, we’ll introduce it to WA for term 2.
