This workshop provides a hands-on experience with the Aerial Robotics 101 curriculum for recreational small UAVs (drones), targeting elementary and middle/high school.
Topics include introduction to UAVs, equipment & procedures (safety), aerodynamics & modeling UAVs with the EV3, coding UAVs for autonomous flight, and aerial photography/cinematography.
No prior experience with robotics, UAVs/drones or coding is required. Participants will be flying the Parrot Mambo, DJI/Ryze Tello and DJI Spark. This course is intended for recreational use of UAVs for STEAM & CS education, not a UAV Pilot Training Course (i.e. not FAA Part 107).
Topics covered include:
- Introduction to Recreational UAVs
- UAV Equipment, Basic Piloting (indoors) and Advanced Operations
- UAV Coding
- UAV Aerodynamics and Technology (modeled with EV3)
- Aerial Cinematography
The fee for this workshop is $149 and participants will receive 6 STEM clock hours and a free Parrot Cargo Min-drone. Questions? Please contact PD Program Administrator Randy Steele at firstname.lastname@example.org
