Youth Programming

Summer Youth Programs 2017


The Incredible Robo-Foundry; Quadcopter Edition



Build a Robot from Scratch

Start with a bunch of parts- electronics, motors, propellers and a lightweight frame. Learn what each part does and then assemble your own flying robot "drone". You'll learn how computers control these incredible aircraft.  Connect electronic parts to form the "brains" and you'll learn how to write computer code to make your quadcopter behave the way you want it to. You'll learn new terms like gyro, pitch, roll and yaw. We'll put your programming and flying skills to the test on the last day with a fun aerobatics competition. The quadcopter is yours to keep and further experiment with after the class is complete.

August 14th - August 18th
