This course will engage students as they learn more about the possibilities of using computer science to control flying robots, aka drones! Even at a distance, it’s possible to simulate the experience of planning and execution of drone flights for good. This course is for students who have little to no experience in computer science (writing code) nor in drone flight and operation. If you’re a beginner this is perfect for you!
Together we will explore the concepts:
How can we understand how far we can fly a drone?
How can we fly the drone safely?
Can we create a flight plan to simulate a delivery?
Using TelloEDU and your available smartphone or tablet, students will get active practice in learning the skills that will enable real drones to complete the delivery of an object at a distance.
Students will learn about drone ethics while exploring ethical ways to use drones, while they build a process and prepare to use a machine to help others autonomously.
