Elementary Drone Control and Programming

This inspiring course teaches students to write computer programs that control drones. The coding activities build and reinforce STEM skills in geometry, art, math, and science towards meeting the ever increasing need of drone logistics in modern societies. Students will learn the dynamics of flight, principles of local and global positioning, path finding, trajectory planning, maneuvering, wireless communication and remote control, computer coding, sensory analysis, decision making and feedback control. Elementary Drone Control and Programming course will enable students to design, build, operate and control drones that can go for different missions and back home safely.

The course is offered from grade 4 to grade 8. The knowledge and skills learned will increase in each grade and so does the complexity of missions the drones are deployed to.

Recommended Accessories: This course requires a physical drone and a tablet (both provided by school). Once students complete each lesson, they need a tablet to try out the programs they build to control the drone. Tablets and drones may be shared between all students in a classroom and take turns flying the drone.
