Are you and your students interested in the idea of using drones to map and collect information? Would you like us to come and show your students how "cool” this technology is and discuss the impacts geographers, planners and spatial scientists have on the world?
In Geography, Planning and Spatial Sciences we use a variety of tools to address complex problems like transport planning, climate change and biodiversity management. We use drones or UAS (unmanned aerial systems), to collect all sorts of data, particularly in locations where it would be impossible otherwise, such as the tops of forests, or over unstable land.
Register below to arrange an interactive workshop with drones at your school.
