Preconference classes are designed to give students, teachers, and mentors an opportunity to focus on a specific topic in a one day workshop environment.
Each year the Global Conference offers several different preconference classes on the day prior to the start of official conference activities. 2018 GCER preconference workshops will be held on July 24, 2018. Attending preconference is optional and does require registration through the GCER registration process for an additional fee.
Each of the classes are from 8:30 -4:30 with a break for lunch(not provided).
The KIPR Aerial: An Introduction to Programming Autonomous Drones
Instructor: Dr. Amy McGovern, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma and Hank Eylicio
Want to learn how to autonomously control drones? Botball will have a new K-12 aerial contest available soon (coming in Oklahoma in Fall 2018 and maybe other regions as well!) based on autonomous drones. The principles are the same as in botball: learn to program, work on your Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics skills and have fun!! We are offering a workshop at GCER to get your drones and your team in the air! Come join us and learn about autonomous drone programming.
