JAR Education’s Build/Fly holiday program is for girls and boys in Sydney NSW aged 8-13.












Like all JAR Education Programs, the BF-813 offers hands-on, stimulating project based learning opportunities for children who are excited about drones and modern technology.


Our focus is to provide fun, engaging, dynamic and relevant programs to children while enabling them for future industries.


Innovation and adventure - Children build their PYGMY, understand the safety requirements and then take to the sky.


“Stepping into the cockpit of an emerging field.”
