Promoting STEM subjects using drones: Map My School
Our session intends to showcase mapping drone technology including geographic information systems which are used to create geospatial data products. We will highlight use-cases such as monitoring crop health in Dodoma Region and flood resilience mapping in the city of Dar es Salaam. A special focus will be on girls to encourage participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects. We intend to replicate these sessions countrywide at local primary schools, high schools, and universities – especially in areas with limited resources. We want the latter to enroll in our business incubation program which is designed for individuals or firms who want to provide drones-as-a-service in Tanzania.
