Drone Innovation Camp

with Donald Sweeper


Our drone camp is a unique and exciting opportunity for students to learn about programing drones for autonomous flight. Over the course of one week, students will work with Tello drones and use a variety of tools and technologies to design and build attachments for their drones.

Students will learn the basics of drone programming, including how to write code to control the drones' movement and perform various tasks. They will also learn about the use of sensors and other technologies to enable the drones to navigate and make decisions on their own.

Students will use computer-aided design (CAD) software to design attachments for their drones. This may include things like payload baskets for carrying candy or other small items, or custom-designed landing gear to improve the drones' stability.

Students will use 3D printing technology to bring their creations to life. They will learn about the 3D printing process and how to set up and operate a 3D printer, as well as how to troubleshoot any issues that may arise.

Throughout the camp, students will have the opportunity to test and refine their drones and attachments, working together in small teams to solve problems and achieve their goals. By the end of the week, they will have gained a solid understanding of drone programming and design, as well as hands-on experience with 3D printing technology.
