It has been so great for me to see my students really shine in this, especially some of those who struggle in other areas.. These students are so proud of their success and it is so encouraging to see how much it boosts their confidence. Anna Cross Teacher from Rockwood School District, MO
Introduce your class to drones and coding. Inspire your class with drones. Using a combination of interactive lessons, concept explanations, videos, puzzles, and DIY projects, Drones 101 teaches students to write programs that control drones. The coding activities build and reinforce STEM skills in geometry, art, math, and science. Each lesson is designed for a class period of 45-60 minutes. All student work is automatically tracked and assessed, and you'll be able to monitor their individual progress and mastery charts.
Recommended Accessories: This course requires a physical drone and a tablet (each sold separately). Once students complete each lesson, they need a tablet to try out the programs they build to control the drone. You can share one or two tablets between all students in a classroom and take turns flying the drone.
*This course is available free for any school that purchases a Classroom Bundle.
Topics Covered: Drone command library, sequencing, repetition, events, conditional logic, problem solving, and debugging.
