Have you ever wanted to fly and design a drone? This exciting, inquiry-based camp will provide students with an opportunity to learn about drone applications, flight regulations, conceptual design, and engineering principles in a safe and positive environment. 3-D printers will be utilized to design drone models using Tinkercad, and Parrot Mambo quadcopters will be coded with Tynker, a creative computing platform. Junior pilots will perform search and rescue missions as drones are navigated through obstacle courses. Participants will keep their own drone at week’s end, and be provided a wealth of resources for independent exploration.

*This camp is recommended for students ages 14-17.
