Curated and Created in Partnership with QUT
Students are exposed to the use and safety of drone technology.
They are introduced to Australian laws and safety measures involving drones and are given guidance on how to use this technology.
Mathematical concepts are covered involving the laws of flight and how to formulate and apply a state space model of a drone.
Students will undertake an activity where they measure the flight speed of a drone using video analysis.
The measurements gained from this activity are used in a rescue-based design challenge.
Students are then challenged to think and discuss other possible benefits or scenarios where drone technology can be used.
