The UK’s leading remote sensing consultancy iRed are excited to announce that they have been appointed the first DJI Educational Partner in the UK. The exciting partnership grants exclusive access to the new Tello EDU drone and accessories, specifically designed for schools and educational centres.
Already an industry leader in specialist training, being approved and recognised by CITB, Lantra, BINDT and the CAA to name a few, Hampshire based technology firm iRed are pleased to announce that they are adding DJI to that list.
Having existing partnerships with many academic institutes such as the University of Portsmouth, Coleg Cambria and University of Plymouth, iRed bring their educational experience into this new venture. Along with their experienced instructors from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, the industry leaders in remote sensing training are pleased to be in a position to support younger students in their discovery of technology.
The DJI Tello EDU drone offers at its heart, a fun way for students to learn programming in languages such as Python, Swift and Scratch. By programming the DJI Tello EDU drone to perform operations solo, or even in swarms, the students can see the results of their efforts happening physically in front of them, rather than just a display on a monitor.
Jack Bloomfield is the Marketing Manager for iRed. He helps businesses realise the benefits of remote sensing and drone operation in the UK.
