About Course

Take to the skies with our STEM-specific educational drones! Campers will master the physics principles which make drone flight possible, and will also gain coding skills as they program their drone’s flight paths to complete a series of challenges. Using a safety-first approach, students will learn how to pilot their drones responsibly, and will collaborate with members of their flight team to complete each mission using a mixture of critical thinking and creativity.

What Will You Learn?

  • What principles are involved in drone flight?
  • What safety measures are needed when flying drones?
  • It requires practice to be an expert drone pilot.
