Drone Science | LocoSummer
* 1 Spot Left * Uncover the secrets of modern-day magic of drones by learning the mechanical construction and electronics behind modern quadcopters. In this summer camp, students will learn the mechanics, construction, physics, sensors, and coding of drones with Python. It’s the perfect introduction to robotics that can spark your child’s curiosity about interactive technology at an early age, through mindful play, problem-solving exercises and meaningful engagement with new friends. Each day will be a highly-engaging combination modern technology exploration and team-based games and competitions. We will cover 1. Aerodynamics of drone flight2. Differences between Helicopter vs Quadcopter vs. Hexacopter vs Octocopter3. Piloting strategies4. Physics behind the flight control of drones5. Building and coding of drones6.
