Summer At Sandy Spring

A High-Flying

STEM Experience!

Drobots Camp

Drobots Camp incorporates the excitement and education of drone technology to stimulate STEM learning in an energetic, friendly and innovative environment. This is a hands-on, project-based program led by educators and industry experts.

We take participants away from the computer screen and introduce them to the world of exploration. Throughout the week students will explore this rapidly growing field and jumpstart their future. Learn the basic mechanics and actual operational skills of remote controlled vehicles and drones including: drone safety, maintenance, airspace, and future drone-related careers. Study the mechanical engineering side of this equipment, as well as the fun side of actually playing with and using this technology.

Week 8: August 7 to August 11

Drone Flying: Adventure & Video

Time to get away from behind the screen – it’s time for a new STEM scene. Participants will be challenged to combine flight skills with their creative minds to produce a drone video as they: self-select topics, create storyboards, record, and produce drone footage. Participants will also code and fly drones on adventurous missions after designing obstacle courses. Earn points and compete during the highly anticipated end-of-program event: The Ultimate Drobot Games.
