The Skies the Limit! Intelligent Drones with TechGirlz

TechGirlz’ mission is to inspire middle school girls to explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. Their vision is to create a world where girls have a lifelong passion and confidence in their use of technology throughout their careers.

At an earlier event we hosted 30+ eager students that wanted to learn about design and 3d printing. The girls discovered how to use Tinkercad to create designs, how 3d printers work and finally they got to print their designs.

We wanted to follow up that event with a new hands on experience for Q1 (Pre lockdown). What better way for students to learn about drones other than to write their own drone control software.

The Drone Programming curriculum is currently in development and will be published to the TechGirlz TechShopz in a BoxTM library of topics in the near future.
