Drobots - Drone Superhero Missions (6/18-6/22)
Superhero Missions is specifically designed for both novice and experienced drone enthusiasts. Our instructors will open the creative minds of participants as campers attack and defend against Superheroes and Villains. Campers begin the week learning basic maneuvers before using their "Spidey-Sense" to conquer missions such as Batman's Drone-Mobile Escape, The Breakout of Iron Man, and more!
Campers will storyboard their own escape missions while other campers attempt to outsmart them using the drone to locate and capture. All campers go home with interactive workbooks. Drone safety and the social responsibilities of flying drones are included in this program.
Drobots - Ultimate Drone Obstacle Challenge 6/25-6/29)
Ultimate Drone Obstacle Challenge is specifically designed for both novice and experienced drone enthusiasts. The week is filled with pure action as campers enjoy one of the world's fastest growing sports, Drone Obstacle Racing. Campers first learn about the basic safety of drone flying and the history behind drone racing as a sport. From there, campers progress through various skill challenges and learn how to perform various exercises and maneuvers to become familiar with the drone's speed and agility.
Campers use iPads and remote controls to navigate the drone through short and long obstacle courses. They also create the design and help build the obstacle course in preparation for the last day's final activity and competition. All campers receive interactive workbooks to take home. Drone safety and the social responsibilities of flying drones are included in this program.Drobots - Drone Coding Wizards (7/9-7/13)
