Rapid growth in drone technology and changing trends in skill sets and job market have obvious impacts on education particularly in Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) areas that requires a multidisciplinary approach and creative pedagogies. To provide the quality STEM education and to cope up with the 21st century skills requirements, integrated approaches need to be incorporated in STEM education. Higher order thinking, creativity, innovation and problem-solving skills are the key features of the near future job market requirements. Connecting classroom learning to real-world problem solving through the technological solution is a way forward to prepare today’s students to meet future challenges.

Drone technology is gradually becoming popular and now offering promising real-world solutions in various fields. Drones can be used for integrated STEM education using inquirybased and experiential learning approaches. This research paper is focused on the provision of connected ways of learning through integrated content knowledge and cross-curriculum links.
