Discover hands on engineering and technology as students learn about Drones and Kerbal Space Program in this exciting summer camp!
Students become flight experts they will begin their drone education by first becoming comfortable on a training simulator on our app. We will learn basic FAA regulations for flying (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs or drones). We will determine how to measure wind speeds and to determine the safe wind speed for flight. Students will learn the maximum distance and flying level of their drone. We will then go through a pre-flight check list to make sure our drone will fly!
As we learn to program the drone, we will move up to line-of-sight piloting where students will take a "Dronie" (selfie from the air). We will calculate additional flight paths such as the spiraling square and have a great time flying our drones!
In addition to the Phantom 3 Drone, we will have many stunt drones on hand to practice our remote controlled planes as they do a series of stunts.
Please note that drones will not be taken home.
Students will learn to play Kerbal Space Program, which uses real physics and math skills to build and launch rockets that can survive the forces exerted onto the spacecraft exiting our atmosphere. Can they land their rocket and fulfill their mission? Students will gain a great understanding of rocket propulsion and control.
