Drone Awareness and Safety Summer Camp – FULL
July 20 @ 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Join us for a unique summer camp that uses drones to inspire students in STEM career pathways. This camp is perfect for a student that has little to know experience but has an interest in learning about drones. Another great use of this camp is for students that may have just purchased a drone themselves and want to know about the rules and regulations on how and where to fly safely.
Drones are a lot of fun but can be a liability nightmare if used incorrectly. This one day workshop will review the following:
- Where to find the laws governing drone use in Texas.
- Basic science behind flight / Dos and Donts
- How to properly safety check your drone before flight
- The differences in fixed wing and rotary format drones
- Hands on skills demonstration on basic flight of a drone
This camp is for students in grades 6th – 12th. This is not an FAA PART 107 COMMERCIAL DRONE LICENSE class, but is a great orientation to the world of legal operation of an unmanned aircraft. This course is taught by an FAA license sUAS drone pilot with more than 8 years of experience in drone flight, program management and training.
