Drones in Cinematography Class XM2

Date: Wednesday 30 August

Time: 09:00am – 12:00pm

Cost: $295 per person.

Aim: The WOD Drone Cinematography masterclass lifts the lid on XM2’s operations, giving an insight on how it has developed to become one of the world’s leading drone cinematography companies.

The masterclass will provide a chance for delegates to get up close and personal with two of the movie industries top drone and camera operators, Stephen Oh and Aidan Kelly, while they share insights, tips and advice on how aspiring operators can become successful in the industry.

The format will be open for Q&A throughout and will provide an end-to-end overview of what’s required to ensure a be safe, trusted and successful in the cinematic world

Drones: Enhancing Work Safety SOLD OUT

Date: Wednesday 30 August

Time: 2:30pm – 4:00pm

Cost: $100 per person.

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, Office of Industrial Relations

This workshop will explore how industry are using drones to enhance safety, eliminating the need to have people working at height, in remote, hazardous or toxic environments. Industry case study presentations from Shell QGC Aviation and Insitut Pacific (gas field inspections), Thompson Longhorn (stockyard management), Shadforths Civil (construction site inspections) and Electrix (remote line inspection) will discuss potential safety applications followed by a panel discussion (WHSQ, Civil Aviation Safety Authority and Industry representatives) on work health and safety requirements surrounding remotely piloted aircraft use in Australia.

In a fun and interactive one-hour workshop, we explore coding and design a program for a Drone Search and Rescue Mission. Learn from a real Drone Pilot, the physics of multi-rotor flight and how Drones operate.

Areas of learning:

  • Introduction to Drones and the physics of multirotor flight.

  • Use a Drone simulator to get a feel for how a Drone operates

  • Learn about algorithms and write a program to control a Drone

  • Innovative thinking through group collaboration and problem solving

World of Drones Teacher PD


Date: 4:00pm – 6:00pm on Thursday 31 August 2017 

Venue: Level 2 Theatre, Queensland Museum

Cost: $30 * (Bookings essential) 

* Price includes refreshments, booking fees, certificate of attendance and resources.

Recommended for Teachers (Years 4 – 6)

Drones are already an integral part of society and will play an even bigger role in years to come. Through this professional development workshop, explore how Drones can be used in STEM learning within schools.


We will be exploring the Digital Technologies curriculum and, in particular, algorithms and programming. We will be looking into how Drones fit this particular area of the curriculum beginning with the fundamental concepts involved in designing and implementing algorithms and creating digital solutions and programs. We introduce programming concepts of repetition, sequences, decisions, abstraction and decomposition, which underpin the art of turning an algorithm into something a computer can understand.


Areas of learning:

  • Introduction to Drones and their capabilities to be integrated into STEM learning and the curriculum.

  • Review of Drone platforms and learning tools to teach Drone coding.

  • Innovative ideas on how to make Drone coding a fun learning experience for you and your students.


This session will use content from the CSER F-6 MOOC course to help teachers to understand the basic concepts of the Digital Technologies curriculum. Attending teachers are encouraged to register for the MOOC so that they have access to this content and additional resources related to the Digital Technologies curriculum.




This program is run with support from Inspiring Australia, in conjunction with the World of Drones Congress 2017.
