Drone technology to be introduced into STEM syllabus
Drone technology was originally developed mainly for military purpose. With the advancement of technology, drones have been increasingly used for various purposes in our daily life. A drone, with its sophisticated design and possibility to explore our amazing world from a bird’s-eye view, has been recognized as a useful tool for promoting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education.
The Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (MOSTI) plans to introduce drone industry and technology in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education syllabus to produce more future industry players. Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said the ministry would discuss with the Education Ministry on the matter in the government's efforts to streamline the syllabus and attract more interest in STEM subjects.
