Girls in STEM Enhance the STEM curriculum at your school with drone education

Creating equality in STEM

Gender bias begins in Primary School, including girls perceptions around their future in a STEM career. If we, as a country, are going to equip our children (of both sexes) for the future, then engagement in STEM across the curriculum is needed.

Why is encouraging girls in STEM so important to Australia?

The future of our economy relies greatly on people with STEM skills. Despite the fact that there is no reason why girls are weaker in STEM than boys, Australia hemorrhages female talent in STEM disciplines from as early as primary school. This means that we are not drawing on 100% of our talent pool in STEM careers, and our economy will suffer from the lack of diversity.

Did you know, only

27%

of STEM jobs are filled by women in Australia. Women are sorely under represented.

Drone sales to grow by

40%

in 2017, with 2.8 million drones to be sold.

Why drones?

There are so many different applications within the world of drones, so we believe there is an aspect of this technology that will strike a chord with everyone. Through activities as diverse as aerial survey, obstacle courses, parcel delivery, creative art, and synchronised dance, drones are so much fun that you forget you are even learning. 

There's no better way to bring digital literacy into your classroom!

How we teach

She Flies programs are effective

Don't just take it from us :) Here's what the mother of one of our students told us:

"It was very evident through the all of the girls’ presentations on Friday that you spent a lot of time empowering all of the girls, not just in the area of science but in all parts of their lives. This was so heart-warming to see and a gentle reminder to me as a mother that we do need to remind our girls that the world is their oyster."
