Drone Camp

Dr. Pam Oliveria, along with For the Win Robotics and PA Rural Robotics Initiative worked with five WVW Middle School students who were among the first 100 to participate.  On Monday they built mini Parrot Travis Drones from scratch.  On Tuesday the flew them using an app on their phones and on Wednesday, our last day, they flew the drones from code.  We were able to have a zoom call with a former drone operator from the FBI who got the kids excited about uses for and careers in drone aviation.
