Micro-Drones for STEM Education

Micro-drones from DJI and Lego are being used in the RMIT Cyber-Physical Systems Group and in the School of Engineering student’s research projects on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education.

This activity is part of a collaborative initiative with industry partner Unbound. RMIT students and researchers are developing new technology-enhanced educational approaches using micro-drones, which build upon a deep understanding of the student learning context and what makes the use of drones interesting for students.

Drones are getting to a point where they are affordable and increasingly seen being used in education. Typical uses for drones include carrying cameras, like those used in movies production and TV, along with multispectral, hyperspectral and laser sensors, like those used in smart agriculture and environmental monitoring. RMIT University, in collaboration with Flight Data Systems, is delivering Australia’s first drone pilot training as part of a degree. The course is also the first in an Australian university to be delivered by industry.
