Overview:

Our Drone programming course for kids in grades 3-6 teaches kids Computer Science fundamentals through hands-on experimentation.  Watch your child’s confidence soar as they learn to write programs that bridge the gap from the digital to the physical world.

No experience with coding or flying drones is required.

Your child will experience the thrill of flight and accomplishment as they learn to program Parrot drones using Tynker’s intuitive visual programming language. Pilot drones through extreme maneuvers, grasping objects and flying aerial combat missions, all with the power of code.

With our older students will dive into the code behind the visual tools to learn how the code communicates with the drone, what types of applications can be built for real-world use of drones, and understand factors that go into using drones in real-world applications like geo-mapping.
