Quadcopter Flight School

GRADE: 3-8

In this exciting program, students go through a quick primer of safety and flight laws before moving on to the piloting their own drone.  Students will learn the physics of quadcopter flight, then build their pilot skills by testing out what they have learned on our obstacle course. Some other fun activities student may participate in are: fly a drone using “First Person View,” flying a computerized flight simulator,  and recording your own aerial video to take home. Students will take home their own mini-quadcopter at the end of camp.
