Classes drone on…and students love it
Traditionally math and science classrooms are littered with textbooks, graphs and Bunsen burners.
But one school in Colchester is using an altogether different set of equipment to get kids ready for life outside of education.
At Thomas Lord Audley, in Monkwick Avenue, youngsters are using 3D printers and virtual reality headsets to create and then learn to pilot their own drones.
It is all part of a drive to get kids interested in science, technology, engineering and maths subjects – collectively known at STEM.
