what will you make the drones do?

Drone Programming is our main theme for the Summer Camp 2017 and the rest of the year after-school classes! Our new innovative curriculum is STEM based, modular, and uses Project Based Methodology. Campers not just learn coding skills, but applied technology utilizing various drones.

Drone Programming Camp 2017 (Level 1)

(no prior programming experience needed)

Ages 9y - 14y

Learn the fundamentals of becoming a drone pilot, then go on to learning coding techniques to make your drone do tricks like picking up and dropping objects from one location to another, shooting cannon balls to specific targets and much more. Students will also learn advanced piloting maneuvers like turning and strafing along with how to use Scratch to connect to a real (Parrot Mambo or other mini drones) drone and take to sky.

Additional skills include(but are not limited to):

  • Learn to connect, fly, and learn to program drones using scratch, and other platforms to fly and jump hurdles, maneuver through obstacle courses, and so on.
  • Get to know the various types of drones and their real world applications.
  • Learn coding basics in perspective of drones, simulate them, then deploy their code to real drones and fly.
  • Campers will work in project teams where they will work toward accomplishing a mission.
  • Camp promotes critical thinking, reasoning and analytical skills and programming concepts and real world application using drones.

And there's more! You get to showcase and demonstrate your cool drone maneuvers on the tinkersol Showcase Day to parents (last day of class - talk to instructor for details).
