Proven Format

If you think drones should form part of your program, check out what some of last years attendees thought about EduDrone, and then join us this year to be inspired and supported!

Very well designed and relevant UAV educational experience. It was my personal Professional Development highlight of 2019, and I participate in a minimum of three per month.

Michael Evans

CEO, Australian Security Academy

EduDrone has been one of my favourite online professional development opportunities.  The flexibility of being able to interact with the sessions live or at our convenience was excellent.  I now have the confidence to roll out a drone program at my school and help my colleagues implement drones into the curriculum.

Sarah Moore

STEM Leader, Mackillop College

I am always looking for projects to incorporate into my new high school drone course!  This conference gave me an opportunity to learn about how other states (in the US) and other countries are using this new technology in their classrooms.  

Veronica Spradlin

Montgomery County Public Schools
