Skies the Limit: Using Drones to Get Kids Programming

Presenter: David J. Lockett, @davidjlockett 

Tynker provides a good opportunity to developing scientific and mathematical understanding. Students become incredibly excited by drones and a good way to put their coding into a practical context is to learn how to code a drone. Learn how to code drones with visual blocks. Make a custom controller that uses input from a tablet’s accelerometer to steer a drone, navigate a virtual drone through virtual obstacles, and more!
