Aviation Day Camp
Design, Build and Program Drones and Robots
HALF DAY PROGRAM (9 am – 12 pm)
Entering Grades K-5
Half Day Only
Program Dates Summer 2021:
Explore the world of autonomous flight and robotics in a special half-day Aviation Camp program!
The Hiller Aviation Museum’s Drone Plex flight center provides an unparalleled opportunity for students to learn to fly small, autonomous robotic safely in a netted enclosure. Throughout the week, students use realistic simulation and the flight of real drones to develop important flying skills. Hand-flown, autonomous and first-person view drones are all included as pilots develop their skills and put them to the test. Campers also complete a flight simulation mission, work with land-based robots and experiment with electric circuits and helicopters to discover the science behind autonomous flight.
Drone Ranger Camp Includes:
- First-Person View (FPY) drone flight
- Drone construction and remote operation
- Drone coding and autonomous flight
- Surface robotics and robot programming
- Helicopter flight simulation
- Circuit electricity and flashlights
- Aerodynamic experiments
- Take-home RC quadcopters
Elementary Topics (K-5)
All camps are located at the Hiller Aviation Museum at the San Carlos Airport.
