Coding Workshop for KS1-2

School Workshops - DRONEdays

Home / School Workshops

Please note: Outreach Workshops only - We visit your school! We can visit schools in All UK Regions

DRONEdays consultants have 30 years of experience in teaching and are passionate about Computing and STEM in Education. We are enhanced DBS checked and carry out a risk assessment at every venue.
We provide ALL of the equipment for the workshop and ALL of the expertise. All you need to do is provide the venue (school hall/gym/studio or similar) and some children!
Workshop sessions are typically 75-90 minutes in length depending on the age of the children, so 3 or 4 sessions can fit into a school day. We tailor every DRONEday to suit your school, teacher and curriculum requirements.
Health and Safety is extremely important to us; we start every session with a safety discussion and all potential risks are addressed; all participants are required to wear appropriate eye protection (which we also provide).
Where time permits, we can also provide a short demonstration of coding to control drones specifically for early years classes.
