Drone camps for girls

School holidays used to be about playing quoits with the kids down the street, but for around 50 girls from Darwin this mid-year break has been a real buzz. The girls aged between 10 and 17 have been taking part in She Flies drone camps where they learn to pilot and program drones. But the camps were about more than just learning to fly for fun, according to She Flies co-founder and chief education officer Karen Joyce. Dr. Joyce said aside from encouraging young women to get involved in STEM subjects and careers, drone camps also taught them a few life lessons.
