Drones Fill the Skies at Narrogin SHS
Posted on 24/11/2022
On Tuesday 22 November we hosted a Year 9 Career Taster event at Narrogin Senior High School. Ten students from Boddington DHS travelled to share the day alongside ten of our lucky Year 9 students, facilitated by Sara and James from Global Drones.
The workshops consisted an introduction to the career pathways associated with the Drone Industry – particularly the Remote Pilots Licence and a Certificate III in Aviation. We had our eyes open to the current growth occurring for drone parcel delivery for groceries and fast food as well as drone coding used for drone shows and the emerging technologies developing passenger transportation drones. Students then participated in two practical rotations. The first was indoors and involved the use of small drones on a racing course as well as a VR experience flying drones in a simulated industrial area. We then moved outdoors where we worked in pairs to fly Mavic drones at a professional level using a marked zone practicing our aviation terminology and practices. Students covered basic drone set up and commands as well as safety protocols and practices.
Students participating in the course showed their amazing focus and enthusiasm, we look forward to planning future events with the Year 9’s.
