Inspire S.T.E.A.M. is expanding the dialogue and application of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics with drone technology in schools and tertiary education organisations. Our programme is a practical and fun way to introduce applied learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Using techniques in both drone operation and computer coding, Inspire S.T.E.A.M. teaches learners ages 8-18 and students of any age, just how awesome drones are, what they can do and where they can be used – growing S.T.E.A.M. disciplines and opening career guidance opportunities unexplored.

Inspire S.T.E.A.M. uses techniques in both drone operation and programming - learners from ages 8 upwards experience just how awesome drones are, igniting their imaginations as they are introduced to applied learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics with drone technology. It is well-known that South African students in general are sorely lagging behind the rest of the world when it comes to the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics. Inspire S.T.E.A.M. brings STEAM alive for them through application of these in a curriculum that takes them on a journey of discovery in design, programming, operation and evaluation; a tangible experience of STEAM that leaves them with a core skill and a greater understanding of the role and value of these disciplines, along with an appreciation and knowledge of how they can be applied. Simon Robinson CEO of Inspire Africa Group is emphatic about contributing to the development of STEAM in all South African schools because “the future of our economy relies greatly on people with STEAM skills. Africa haemorrhages cross cultural talent in STEAM disciplines from as early as primary school. This means that we are not drawing on 100% of our talent pool in STEAM careers, and our economy will suffer from the lack of diversity.” “We want to get the youth of today excited about drones, drone technology and the aviation industry by providing the opportunity for the youth to learn new skills and use these skills in their future development and employment,” says Robinson “it is important that private industry supports our government’s focus on developing STEAM in our schools and Inspire S.T.E.A.M. is our product designed to do just that. While the costs associated with the programme are more easily managed by independent schools, with government support funding, there is no barrier to this programme being incorporated into all South African schools to directly support STEAM needs. In addition to this, we are currently in negotiation with parties creating opportunity for corporate social responsibility funding to be able to offer this programme to all our scholars. However this does not mitigate the need for government’s participation to introduce this programme to all schools in South Africa, as the effort will require multiple funding streams”. Build. Code. Fly. The course, which can be either part of the schools curricula or taken as an extra curricula activity covers STEAM in over 32 lessons, with schools fully equipped with tablets, smart phones, Tello Drones and an obstacle course/ drone racing track and all the other accessories needed to have learners and students take to the air. They learn to code and programme in Python. [Read Less]

Inspire Africa / Reddam Constantia STEAM Collaboration
Inspire S.T.E.A.M. Drone coding programme, Inspire Africa Group
Inspire Africa’s programme provided a perfect vehicle to introduce and implement STEAM into our school. Their hands-on approach to the implementation and training has helped to lessen the anxiety felt by the teachers working with this technology for the first time. The training received by the teachers was clear and well presented. The training documentation provided is excellent, allowing for easy conversion into the classroom situation. What has impressed me the most is Inspire Africa’s after-sales availability to provide help and to answer any questions; they follow up on a regular basis to ensure that everything is running smoothly. Their offer to come to the school and help out with training the students was appreciated. The quality of the equipment is excellent. The simplicity of the design and technology has made the learning process incredibly seamless and easy. The students are loving the programme, watching the excitement and feeling their energy as they learn is inspiring as a teacher.
