Mikrokopter safety setup to us in school projects

It would probably have to be tethered to limit its movement.
Even putting guard rings around the props wouldn't work, as the first thing someone is likely to do if it comes towards them is put their hand up for protection. There is always the risk of a hand going into the prop from above or below the guard ring.
Quadcopters etc, have been flown very successfully indoors, and they probably rely on the pilot shutting the throttle in the event of any personal risk. Likewise, in the event of a radio failure, the throttle should instantly shut.
Whether the teacher/authority in the science class can accept those as suitable 'health a safety measures', is probably down to negotiation.
Also whether the school/college, (you ?), has suitable insurance cover for a possible multi million claim in the event of..............
