For Schools Getting Organised Step 4

The Fun Stuff!

What equipment do we need?

We provide choices to the schools in regards to the equipment. Some schools like to buy the equipment so they can integrate the learning back into the classroom after the program (our recommendation). Others like to hire the equipment from us and make a choice later about purchase.

Our program uses the Parrot Mambo drones.

Make some choices about resources

  • There are some things that we ask each school to supply. Please make sure you can supply these things (list below).
  • Choose whether you want to buy or loan equipment. Choose from a pack below.

Additional Items

Some things are extra

The prices provided on this page do not include items such as:

  • Venue hire - Most schools have a suitable indoor area about the size of a basketball court.
  • Instructor travel costs - We have instructors around the country, but sometimes not in your town or city. We do travel, a lot! So we can add on travel costs as a disbursement.
  • Catering - Most kids just pack a lunch and so do our instructors!
