Mavic 2 Pro vs Phantom 4 Pro V2.0

by Michael Woods 0 min read

This post will not be investigating all the specs of these 2 great aircraft. There are numerous articles as well as the aircraft manuals if you want to study the features and specs in detail. I will mainly investigate their differences so if you are looking to make a decision about which one to purchase you have specific differences on which to base that decision.

Both drones have superb flight characteristics, are easy to fly, even for a novice, and have excellent collision detection technology. With an excellent array of intelligent apps, like hyperlapse, follow me, tap-to fly, draw etc  to make the operators life easier, either of these drone are worthy of inclusion in your tool set.

For me, if I had to choose it would be the Mavic 2 Pro. The panning ability is a game changer for me.... although, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 has the mechanical shutter. Choices, choices!

The Best STEM Resources Motivate Students

by Michael Woods 0 min read

The STEM acronym was introduced in 2001 by the U.S. National Science Foundation n(NSF). In the early 2000s in the US, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics became increasingly integrated following the publication of several reports. Rising Above the Gathering Storm (2005), a report of the U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, emphasized the links between prosperity, knowledge-intensive jobs dependent on science and technology, and continued innovation to address societal problems. Gradually the notion of STEM Education developed that linked educational outcomes to work force requirements.

So what is STEM? The acronym stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. In education, STEM heralded a new era in educational practices. With recognition at the highest level of Educational systems the money and resources began to flow. Educational Innovators were now combining what were once independent and relatively droll subjects into challenging, cross discipline learning activities that opened learning to the kids natural curiosity.

STEM in all its guises has brought Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Education out of the dark ages. Kids are really engaging again in the scientific pursuits and this can only augur well for our world as kids grow up with great knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of mankinds future.

STEM Education and Drones

by Michael Woods 0 min read

Robots have been the in thing for STEM education for a while now, but Drones offer a multitude of possibilities.  Besides the obvious uses, offering new perspectives in photography and film making, future use of drones appears to only be limited by our imagination. Uses for Drones in STEM can begin with coding courses using the Droneblocks  App and resources , but imagine using your school drone or drones to complement your art courses, or use drones to enthuse students about Newtonian Physics, and a Year 12 student could code a whole application for the drone in IT, or collect data for their Year 12 Project. The only limit is your, and their, imagination! According to research, school kids today may well be working in the Drone or related industries. They might even get to work on Drones destined for the Moon or Mars!
