WKSCH011: Introduction to Drones
Class Number 1158-51595

This introductory and informative workshop will start out in the classroom and covers the history, evolution, and many applications of drones.

See how drone technology is impacting society today. Learn the major components of a multi-rotor drone and how it operates, including the rules of safe flight and how to be a responsible user.

Teams of students will assemble a multi-rotor quadcopter which the instructor will use to perform a flight demonstration. Each student will get to try their hand at flying on a flight simulator.

After class, everyone will have the option to purchase a Syma X1 Quadcopter to take home ($40).
