Drone Making for School Science Project


Drone is also called as unmanned aerial vehicle. It is a part of unmanned aerial system and an aircraft without human pilot aboard. UAV or drone run completely on human remote control or by onboard computers.

The main components of the aerial system are the aerial vehicle and ground base controller.

The communication between them is controlled by a system.

These are not recommended for humans but have been increasingly used now with advancement in technology.

They are used for military purposes, scientific and agricultural purposes now.

In this video, we show a working school project of drone for experimental purpose using materials that are easily available.

This can be done only under the guidance of teachers or only for experiment.

Materials Used:

  1. Small toy fans
  2. Motors in electric toys
  3. Wire
  4. Straws
  5. Tape
  6. Scissors
  7. AA batteries

You use the resource/tools page section to find the tips where you can buy these materials used at a reasonable cost.

Questions and Answers:

  1. What are the functions or uses of drone?

A. The various functions of the drone are to provide intelligence in the battlefield, aerial view of the enemy battle field, delivering cargo, aerial photography and other agricultural purposes.

2. What are the components of a drone?

A. The main components of drone are power supply, computing machine, sensors, actuators, software applications, flight controls and communication adapters.

3. What are the autonomous operations carried out by the drone?

A. The autonomous operations carried out by the drone are self-level, altitude hold, hover position, headless mode, care-free, take off, landing, failsafe, follow me, return to home and pre-programmed functions.

4. What are the benefits of drone?

A. With increasing technology, there are many uses of the unmanned aerial vehicle.

They are specifically found to be more useful for military purposes in which it is used for reconnaissance, attack and target practice.

Apart from this, it is used for civil and commercial purposes as well.


Even though there are many reasons to the unmanned aerial systems for various purposes, there is always a room for risk.

Thus, it is very important for few safety and security rules to be followed for the proper functioning and reducing the risk of using the system.

There could be risk of collisions or interference with other air craft or flight controllers. There could be some parties that could use the vehicles for dangerous uses like targeting the place from another place far away from them.

So, it is always better to follow some guidelines and rules before they are put into action for any application.
