Aerial Botball Challenge Program

The KISS Institute for Practical Robotics is excited to officially announce the launch of our Aerial Botball Challenge Program! 

This program is a curriculum-based program for upper elementary, middle, and high school students that teaches computer science skills and the Python programming language in a team setting through hands-on use of a Tello EDU minidrone. After utilizing the curriculum in the classroom or after school, students can showcase their skills and accomplishments at *Aerial Challenge Days, competition events where student teams work to solve progressively more difficult challenges. 

Key Elements of the Program:
– Training Workshops for Educators
– Cumulative Curriculum
– Continual Educational and Technical Support

The Program fee is $75 per drone, and the purchase of the Aerial Botball Challenge Kit includes this fee for the first time. Subsequent years, the drone equipment can be reused, however the $75 will need to be paid annually to continue to receive support and eligibility to attend workshops.  You may attend multiple workshops for free when you sign up for $75 year access. 

Some important notes:
*Additional entrance fees will apply to each drone that attends Challenge Day Events. Challenge Day entrance fees will vary depending on location. 

*Students in the program MUST have access to a computer running Windows, Mac OSX, or other Linux OS, and MUST have admin access. (CANNOT BE iPads, other tablets, Chromebooks, etc.)
