Children’s Activities and STEM engagement

In these challenging times, a number of organisations have created materials, involving drones, for children of varying ages.


The ORCA Hub (Offshore Robotics for the Certification of Assets) are participating in the digital Edinburgh Science Festival. They have created downloadable resources to help the public learn about their work.

There is a colouring book featuring different types of autonomous vehicle and a Wind Turbines Cartooon (very cool & got the thumbs up from my 9 & 12 year olds).


Skybound Rescuer have created a competition: colouring in for younger children and a ‘Create your Own Rescue Drone Story.


Orbit by SheMaps 

Over 40 hours of STEM drone training by Karen Joyce. Karen further offers Live in Orbit: Fun, daily, live episodes and questions with STEM Communicators, for 5 – 12 year olds with a ‘Free or pay what you can’ option too.


Get Kids into Survey

Get Kids into Survey began in 2017 with the creation of the first GKiS poster – a fun resource for the survey community to share with their children in order to help them understand what their parents did at work.   The response from industry members was so overwhelmingly encouraging that, just two years later, we have a whole range of survey posters in production, and we have distributed over 30,000 copies globally.  There’s colouring, posters, comics and quizzes.
