Drones, GIS and Bushfire Recover (Drones to the Rescue) Year Level: Secondary 7-8

(0)
In Australia, the Black Summer Bushfires roared through 24 million hectares of bushland. Over 3000 homes were destroyed and over 3 billion animals were estimated to be killed or displaced. How can drones and GIS be used to support research and recovery? Kangaroo Island and other parts of Australia were severely damaged by the 2019/20 bushfires. Students explore what happened, how it affected the island, what part does GIS (Geospatial Information Systems) and drones play in the research and the implementation of programs to assist the recovery. Subject Focus : Geography, Geography Inquiry Skills, Digital Technologies, Design Technologies & Science Year Level: Secondary 7-8 LESSON CONTENT Lesson 1: Kangaroo Island - Before and After the Black Summer Bushfires Lesson 2: Exploring Kangaroo Island - Bushfire - Case study Lesson 3: GIS - Recording Bushfire History Lesson 4: Drones in Recovery Lesson 5: Real Life scenario - Choose from 1 of the following real life drone challenges: ▪ Counting koalas - Simulated tally and data collection; Before and After - Observing and Recording the effects of a bushfire; Seeding Forests or Feeding Wildlife All She Maps teaching resources are mapped to the Australian Curriculum.

Drones, GIS, & Floods (Drones to the Rescue) - Secondary 7&8

(0)
Drones, GIS and Floods is a comprehensive case study that focuses on a hydrological and atmospheric hazard and is most suitable for Year 7 Geography: Water in the World but also aligns with Year 7 and 8 Design and Technology, Digital Technologies and Year 8 Geography: Landforms and landscapes. Case Study In early 2019, a major flood event occurred in the city of Townsville and surrounding areas, on the eastern coast of Queensland, Australia. A year’s worth of rainfall saturated Townsville in a week, causing the spillway gates of the Ross River Dam to be fully opened, inundating suburbs downstream. This program follows a case study approach to this flood event, to investigate the causes and impacts of one of the most common and costly hazards in Australia. Learning Intentions Identify and explain key causes that contributed to the 2019 flood event in Townsville Observe and describe floods from a temporal and spatial perspective Identify and explain social, economic and environmental impacts on people and places Use manual and coded flight skills to simulate a real world response using drones Explore flood response and recovery using a GIS Disaster resilience education is an important element to the curriculum as it not only teaches students about how natural disasters are impacting communities around the globe but how it affects them at a regional and local level. With the frequency of bushfires, cyclones and floods in Australia it is not only important to enable students to participate in understanding the risks of natural hazards such as floods, but expose them to important STEM careers available to them in the areas of emergency responders, and GIS analysts and planners. Transdisciplinary Real-world applications Drones, GIS and Floods is flexible enough to be used for just one lesson or as a full unit of work. Each of the 5 lessons challenges students to use their Geography Inquiry Skills to explore the subject matter. There are also STEM challenges linked to lessons where students can use their design and technology skills as they use microdrones to become an SES drone pilot for the day by designing payloads to drop medication, lifejackets or radios and water to stranded people in floodwaters.

Starting a drone delivery network is not for the faint of heart. The team at Swoop Aero guide the students to follow five important steps to create their own drone delivery solution that solves a community need. Code, Fly, Deliver A Full Unit of Work | Curriculum Aligned | Suitable Grades 5-10 Industry Partner: Swoop Aero, Australia The problem at hand! The global drone market will grow from $14 billion in 2018 to over $43 billion in 2024. (The Drone Delivery Report 2019-2024). There are already businesses in Australia that have started delivering products, from coffee, to mail, and even vaccines. But starting a drone delivery network is not for the faint of heart. Through short videos, the Swoop Aero team guides the students to follow five important steps to create their own drone delivery solution that solves a community need. The students will have the opportunity to: *** Research the drone delivery industry** *** Design and urban or rural drone delivery network that solves a community need** *** Present their robust business case to the ‘local community’ and ‘investors’** Swoop Aero and She Maps take you and your class through a series of 5 steps to creating a successful drone delivery solution. This includes: Operational Viability – Invent a drone delivery network solution for your local community! Regulation and Legal Consideration – Think about who you would need approval from? Research and Development – Use creativity to design a network and the drone that flies it! Community Engagement – The opportunity to reach out and integrate with the local community and gain their full support. Recruitment – Find and engage with the talented people who will run the service. All She Maps teaching resources are mapped to the Australian Curriculum.

Bring a real world challenge into your classroom and investigate how drones are saving lives in Nepal, & help the locals unravel the challenges of providing healthcare to remote communities. **A Full Unit of Work Suitable Grades 5-10 Industry Partner: Nepal Flying Labs Real World Challenge** Access to healthcare is a challenge in many remote regions of Nepal, as patients and healthcare workers have to walk for hours or even a full day along steep, winding tracks between the village and the nearest hospital. Drones can help to solve some of these critical issues around access to essential medical supplies. Using the real world application of drone technology, with our partner Nepal Flying Labs, students will simulate the transport of critical medical supplies to remote villages in Nepal. The students will learn: The challenges facing remote communities in the Himalayas The role that technology can play in humanitarian efforts How to block and line-based code drone flight paths to deliver much-needed medicines to the remote communities All She Maps teaching resources are mapped to the Australian Curriculum.
