Year 9 Computing students were recently given an opportunity to explore the world of drones with an industry professional from the social enterprise group She Maps. The workshop had the students, piloting drones, coding, problem-solving and exploring real-world geospatial scenarios at Melbourne Polytechnic’s Greensborough campus.

She Maps run programs specifically to empower girls and provide diversity in STEM education. Students were challenged to think about gender bias in STEM professions and collaborate to solve real-world problems.

It was a great learning experience for all!
