DRONETECH “Drone Build” Educator Workshop

July 26 - 28, 2021 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Fletcher College 1407 LA-311 Schriever, LA 70395 US

This course will give educators the opportunity to assemble, calibrate, and experiment with the ELEV-8 v4 Quadcopter, a small unmanned aerial vehicle purpose-built for education. Participants will assemble a quadcopter and learn about each of its components, their composition and their function. Participants will then learn safety, legal, and ethical considerations regarding unmanned aerial vehicles.

We will introduce the Ryze Tello STEM drone and participants will learn how to interface via mobile application and traditional controller. We will teach the basics of block coding and how the Tello can be programmed for autonomous flight. You will get a chance to practice flying the Tello's in a controlled environment using the flying and coding skills acquired throughout this camp. Lastly, we will teach participants about possible application-specific modifications that can be made to the Tello using 3D print technology and how it can be used as a tool for student competitions.
