Why Drone Technology?

Drones are staged to become mainstream in almost all facets of society.  UAV Jobs are constantly being created weekly.

Scholars learn multiple program languages from scratch to Python!

Students are challenged to think “Out of The Box “ Our scholars design and build drones from scratch…. As such…they are challenged to think from a world view. Scholars look at the micro world and the macro world view of drone technology. Think aerial robotics and Aerial fun!

Why Learn To code Drones?

 

  1. Math concepts such as variables and conditions
  2. Logic such as sequencing as well as cause and effect
  3. Techniques for solving problems
  4. Project design such as the importance of breaking down big ideas to specific tasks
  5. Benefits of collaboration and techniques for communicating ideas
  6. Ability to take criticism as well as identify and fix errors
  7. Perseverance in the face of difficulty

 

Why Aerial robotics

Scholars who struggle with reading, writing, and math in school, our program engages them in game based learning and enhances these skills

 

Robotic World

 As robotics and computers become increasingly prevalent in students’ lives, understanding programming and programming concepts is becoming very important for students’ success. Robots are a fun, easy, and effective way to learn about computer programming. Programming a robot has tangible, observable effects.
