We Love What We Do…Register for A Program Today!
Start A Drone Squad at your School (Private and Public), Home School, Church, or Neighborhood!
Build a Drone, Code A Drone, Fly a Drone Education Programs for scholars (3rd grade-12th) after school at private, public, or home schools – Program Minimum is 20 scholars- Once per week August to April.
After School Program utilizes a strategic curriculum:
- Drones and Writing: Scholars not only learn to build but also are given writing assignments that require them to speak (or even meet) with scientist and engineers from around the globe.
- Aviation concepts are learned like Bernoulli’s principle and students learn how to predict things such as stall speed by using Math
- Electronics principles: Scholars learn to wire micro-controllers and electric motors
- Chemistry: battery chemistry and capacity in order to truly understand drone design and function
- Drone Cinematography- School related; 2 Field Trips (Non-school day)
- Equipment: 3D Printing, Tablets, VR, Flight Computer, Engineering Software
- Skills: Team Building, Leadership, and Character Building Skills and Much Much More!
- Teams: Students will work in teams of eight to build a drone robot. After successfully building their robot, each team will learn to fly their robot and prepare for “aerial competitions” and skills challenges
To maximize student’s engagement this year, Kids Drone Zone scholars will participate in several new initiatives:
- Classrooms without walls allowing scholars to engage student’s from around the globe and share ideas and concepts with scholars in Australia, Europe and Africa.
- KDZ is introducing Virtual reality to the program
- Our Scholars will build a global platform model for scholars around the world to learn from.
- International Youth Drone Photo/Film Festival –Scholars around the globe will take and Photos/Films with a drone and submit to a competition for a prizes starting August 20th
Drone Think Tank Camps are fun for kids and adults and help scholars see robotic aircraft from a broader perspective. Through our Think Tanks, we can train scholars in the design, fabrication, customization, and operation of small robotic aircraft. It is an excellent blend of science, technology, art, engineering, aviation, and math (STEM/STEAM). Scholars learn about 3D printing, integration of robotic systems, and flying techniques as they build a quadcopter or hexacopter in an actively engaging handson and innovative camp. With guest speakers from the Federal Aviation Authority(FAA), Academy of Model Aeronautics, and local Maker Spaces, we have hundreds who have earned their “Drone Operator Certificate.”
Think Tanks are held throughout the year s for youth and adults.
Held at schools and at parks. Provides participants up close and hands on experience with Drones and Drone Technology. Held throughout the year!
