Coding for FUN or as a REWARD!
School Workshops - DRONEdays
DRONEdays consultants have almost 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 60-90 minutes in length depending on the age of the children, so 3,4 or 5 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).
