We believe that inside every child lives a legend!™ In this camp we will use the magic of drones to engage students in highly entertaining, academically challenging, drone-themed missions that require them to work in teams, fail-forward, and explore modern technology solutions to problems based on real-world scenarios. Students will learn drone flight skills, coding skills, autonomous flight, engineering, and social and emotional skills needed for the 21st Century workplace. They will learn the science of flight, apply math, explore drone-based careers, create drone-captured media, and compete in drone events. With drones making up a huge sector of the upcoming job market, “on the job training” has never been so fun! Join our camp today and be prepared for a changing world.
