The Canadian drone academy was hired by Havergal School in Toronto, Ontario to come to give a half day experience with drones to 24 girls. This first time experience allows students to get a general overview of how drones work and the history of drones and where the industry and technology is headed. We then give each student a hands of experience with the drones by letting them pilot one of our little tiny 25 gram drones. The students had a great first time experience and had fun doing it while learning about drones and STEM. We believe this is a winning combination and every student gave us positive feedback and the headmaster has invited us back to do more experiential learning days like so and are even interested in creating their own drone club!

They're at it again! A day after The Priory School's science week, where the Canadian Drone Academy taught grades 5 and 6 the basics of Drone flight.The Priory school invited us again to their first ever Maker’s Faire. Similar to science week, the Canadian Drone Academy alongside other key guests were invited to host table booths showcasing their particular STEM specialities. The students weren’t the only ones thrilled to participate! Priory staff, parents and guests were eager to play with drones! Students of all ages under our wing learned drone safety and Canadian flight regulations. Once ready, students picked up micro-drone remotes and FPV goggles. Students were excited to stay afloat and perform flight maneuvers, ultimately hoping to challenge the deathly hoola hoop obstacle course in the gymnasium. "It was great to see the look on all the kids faces," says Nick Iversen, Canadian Drone Academy founder, "it's always a pleasure to work with the Priory School." The event aimed to introduce technology to the everyday curriculum, and most importantly teaching students that they too can be makers n’ movers in whatever they choose to do.
