3-Day Session (Wed-Fri).  Special pricing applies.

Leap into the world of drones, robotics and remotely piloted aircraft!

Master robotic design and simple programming using the unique Artec robotics platform, originally developed for use in Japanese schools.  Campers build and then program multifunction robots capable of sensing their environment and moving within it!

Robo Mechanics take flight in the Hiller Aviation Museum’s Drone Plex flight center.  Use high-fidelity multirotor simulators to master remote aircraft operation, then fly real drones in the netted Drone Plex enclosure.  Build and fly a first-person-view (FPV) drone, then program a multirotor aircraft to have it complete a flight autonomously!

Explore the science of electricity and build and drive an electric-powered car.  Explore pneumatics, simple machines, and solar energy.  Investigate helicopters, space vehicle design and more in an exciting adventure in drone and robotic engineering!
