Coding with Drones
Ages 13-18 yrs / Tuesday's & Wednesday's (4:45 pm - 6:00 pm)
Drones in many ways are helping to define the future of commerce and entertainment. DroneCode introduces Tech Scholars to the world of drones, programming and coding. Using a combination of interactive lessons, videos, puzzles, and DIY projects, DroneCode teaches Tech Scholars to write programs that control drones. The coding activities build and reinforce STEM skills in engineering, geometry, art, math, and science.
Tech Scholars learn the basics of making a drone take off, land, move in different directions, do flips and more. They'll begin by reviewing sequencing concepts as they write steps on how to make a drone fly using their own imagination. The Tech Scholars also learn to make their drones dance. The program culminates in the participants making a flying and dancing drone formation..

What Tech Scholars Learn
Fundamental coding concepts like events, variables, conditionals, and loops
Program Parrot drones using Tynker's visual code blocks
Program your own remote control to fly the way you want to fly
Sync projects to and from the Tynker mobile app
Program drones to react to your tablet's accelerometer
Navigate drones through obstacle courses
Perform fantastic aerial stunts and maneuvers
Basic Drone Programing
1. Introduction to Tello EDU Drone Programming with DroneBlocks
This course will run you through the very basics of the DroneBlocks interface, how to connect to your Tello or Tello EDU, as well as a sneaky little introduction to loops.
2. Introduction to Tello Drone Programming
This course goes a little further with its introduction to block coding, and steps you through how to use loops, variables, and logic – crucial tools for those looking to step-up their coding abilities!
Advanced Drone Programing
3. Advanced Tello Programming with DroneBlocksLearn to fly in arcs and curves! This course teaches you to break free from simple up-down movements and adds a whole new dimension to flying.
