Minyip Students Take to the Sky with Drone Project

Minyip Primary School students are proving that not even the sky is the limit when it comes to education, with 20 new drones being purchased by the school.

The new technology is being integrated into different subject areas such as science, where students are learning about flight as a topic.

Many students also come from a farming background, with the drone experience at school giving them a good hands-on learning environment to develop skills which can be applied at home.

Principal Ben Tait spoke to Flow FM about the drone program which has been supported by a grant from Yarriambiack Shire Council.
