Lesson Plan: Drones in Disaster Management

Drones are increasingly being used as an important part of disaster management. One of the documented uses of drones in disasters happened during the 2015 earthquake in Nepal.

On the 25th of April 2015, Nepal was struck with what is known as the Gorkha earthquake. It killed nearly 9,000 people and injured nearly 22,000. The earthquake had a magnitude of 7.8Mw or 8.1Ms and a maximum Mercalli Intensity of VIII (Severe).

In this activity, students are going to emulate the use of drones in disasters by learning how to map a disaster zone and come up with a plan to manage the situation.
