Drones are quickly becoming a part of mainstream technology. Our Drone Coder course allows students to get some hands-on experience with a drone, from piloting it, to creating their own controller and learning about the inner machinations of a drone that allow it to fly.

We start off with the most important part of the course – the drone! Students will have a chance to look at the drones we use, see some of the inner workings, and have a chance to pilot one using proprietary controllers. This gives students a sense of what they will be accomplishing throughout the week.

Students will then run through a quick HTML workshop (what the controller will be made using) before moving on to creating the server that will communicate between the controller they will make and the drone (using JavaScript and Node.js). The course will cover all the major drone controls, including taking off, landing, translating and rotating, as well as some extra challenges - such as making the drone ‘draw’ shapes in the air! Students will also take a live feed from the camera of the drone and display it on their controller! Finally, students will be introduced to the concept of a control loop and how they are used to maintain a state based on input and output values, in this case maintaining the drone’s position in the air. To finish off, students will take part in miniature challenges, such as racing, to see how well they have honed their piloting skills and controller over the week!

REALLY FUN!

Had a great time and made lots of friends that i will keep forever! I enjoyed flying and coding the drones as it was an experience of a lifetime! Joe was a great break time manager and all ways kept us company and entertained. I can't wait for my next fun tech week! I hope you enjoy the course as mu

Great!

This course is very interesting and I especially liked it because it was not completely to do with coding and we got to have some one on one with the drone instead of just doing coding all the time.
