Drobots Camp

An action-packed drone camp!

CAMP EXPERIENCE SESSION 1 (week of July 10):

We check all of the boxes of STEM drone education during this action-packed program. Teams transition from the simulator to the remote control and enjoy a multitude of thrilling challenges on and off the ground! Get ready for a week of friendly competition as you and your team take to the sky and attempt to win the badge of the Ultimate Drone Games champion. Participants will experience the thrill of today’s latest drone technology including drones equipped with mini nerf cannons and mini grabbers. It’s all about the grand finale as teams conquer challenges and earn points for the end-of-program event: Ultimate Drobot Games. Drone safety and the social responsibilities of flying drones are included in this program.
