Drone Day Teaser masterclasses are landing in London this January to inspire girls into STEM

Venue: Royal Aeronautical Society, No.4 Hamilton Place, London W1J 7BQ

Timings: 10:00 – 12:30 and 13:00 – 15:30

The Royal Aeronautical Society is delighted to announce that the Australian STEM programme, Shemaps, and its partners, will be coming to its headquarters building in January 2019 to offer girls in UK secondary schools the chance to take part in a Drone Teaser Day.

Teachers can immerse their students in an ‘edutainment’ experience that takes them on the journey of a day in the life of a geospatial scientist and drone pilot. Students will explore different applications of drones before embarking on their mission to capture aerial photography over a disaster stricken town.

Core learning stages include safety, manual flight, and coding for autonomous flight. This unique girls only opportunity is brought to you by She Maps, James Cook University Australia, and the University of Exeter. See www.shemaps.com for more information.

Lots more fantastic plane design ideas from kids @Kidzania yesterday including balloons, a gaming console table instead of #cockpit and using the wind to power the aircraft #CoolAeronautics @AARCORP https://t.co/tBc3mhHmv5
