MELBOURNE GIRLS GRAMMAR SCHOOL
South Yarra, VIC
To address today’s world of accelerating technological integration with human activities, drone technology has been introduced into the STEM learning at Melbourne Girls Grammar School. Students in Years 3 and 4 undertake a drone program called The Queen Bee Flying Program. By participating in the program, students are exposed to problem-based learning across a range of different disciplines. Students are required to predict, plan, analyse and evaluate their way through a short course, which concludes with their own drone licence. Drones are also used to teach electronics and computer programming whilst developing skills such as computational thinking and curiosity.
