St Paul’s College NZ, Drone Legends Experience

Finn Lloyd of St Paul’s College shared his recent Drone Legends experience in the school newsletter, saying “The Drone Legends experience was like no other, from Coding and Path-Flying a drone through a structure or room to creating a drone of our own. There is no experience that I would rather spend the day doing, and all of my thanks go to Mrs Brayshaw, as well as Dr Hansen and the Drone Legends NZ program.”

Drone STEM Curriculum with engaging MISSIONS

The Drone Legends Student Mission Guide has everything the students need to complete the drone missions. Each mission is written as a story, which are cleverly designed to recreate real scenarios where STEM career skills would be used. The guide allows kids to navigate the mission independently, finding answers to their own questions along the way.
