Drone Navigation: Take Off Using Python

AGES: 11-14, 15-18

PROGRAM: On-site 

COURSE REQUIREMENTS:

  • None

Camp Description

The drone programming camp is all about hands-on learning, innovation, and adventure. Campers will be introduced to basic flight mechanics and aerodynamic principles to understand how to code and fly a drone. Focused on data analysis and quick decision-making, campers will maneuver through obstacle courses by coding in the Python 3 programming language. Throughout the week, campers will learn that there is so much more to drones than just flying! Areas like the relationship between software and hardware become apparent as campers will need to code solutions to limitations of their environments and toolsets. With a solid foundation in the Python 3 programming language, campers will be able to plot their course, code, and take off!
