Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Age: 13-17 years

Please note this workshop is spread over two days -Saturday and Sunday – 3 hours each day from 9am-12pm


This camp is offered to those who are interested in learning how to use computer design tools and in understanding the foundation of programming and reverse engineering concepts. After gaining familiarity with these topics, campers will create their own radio controlled drone under the guidance of the camp instructors. The process of building drone encompasses a broad set of activities, from brainstorming to designing with demos that visually explain concepts and requires a fair amount of computational thinking.

The first half of the camp will be spent on teaching new generation computer design tools, namely TinkerCad, and 3D printing tools like Cura and the Ultimaker 3D printers. During the second half of the camp each participant will learn about the parts that go into a drone. They will then be provided a set of electronics such as a remote control, drone controller, battery, motors and a charging cable and will be challenged to develop a drone. Basic understanding of engineering design and assembly will provide a direction for continued learning and campers will be encouraged to explore the topics further on their own. At the end of the weekend, participants will be able to take home their drone.
