This lesson gives students an opportunity to increase their knowledge of drones and how they are used in real world applications.  Students develop their soft skills while learning about drone essentials regarding various types, how they are used, safe operations and types of licencing required.  They will also learn as part of the lesson, the components and requirements needed to build a quadcopter drone designed for racing at high speeds.   Controlling toys are great for teaching lessons in applied logic, programming, problem solving and bringing STEM learning to life.  Drones allow students to visualize their efforts towards building and programming drones to perform and address real-world challenges; they’re also super fun and engaging for all involved!


This drone ‘build’ lesson is ideal for students wishing to learn more about Drone technology and real world applications utilizing drones; that they can achieve.

Feel free to call us at 1-416-558-8888 so that we can meet to discuss an appropriate lesson that works for you, should you need assistance.
