Students will learn how to fly pocket-sized drones and how to program them to complete a series of missions. Working in groups, students will build a remote controller from chipboard, wires, and joysticks. After pairing a drone and a remote, students will learn to program the drone to perform aerial acrobatics. Good-natured competitions will provide students with a learning platform to improve their understanding of how to fly a drone. These DIY Drones are for indoor use only and are the property of the program; students will not be taking any equipment home. This course is designed for students who have little or no experience with circuits and computer programming.
Note: This class is designed for high school students. The Sally Ride Science Junior Academy courses are designed to inspire young adults to pursue careers in STE[+a]M.
