Join the KISS Institute for the Autonomous Drone Challenge Program!
This Challenge Program is for middle/high school students to learn and program their own drone to autonomously complete tasks. No previous coding experience is necessary. The workshop will teach the basics of the library and set participants up with the knowledge and resources needed to independently continue work on their drone leading up to the Challenge Day. The Challenge Day will be a showcase of all the teams autonomous drones as everyone works to complete the challenge! All programming will be taught using (and the provided library is in) the Python programming language.
Registration cost is $100 per drone. (Recommended one or two participants per team, max of 3 students per drone on Challenge Days).
Additional Details About Future Challenge Days:
An adult is required to be present with the teams the entire duration of the event (adult can be the same for multiple teams). Challenge Day events will run 8:00am - 4:00pm.
To Each Challenge Day Teams Need to Bring:
- At least 1 Parrot Drone (Parrot Mambo FPV preferred, other types MUST have prop guards)
- At least 1 Laptop (we will help set up code libraries at the workshop) WITH ADMIN ACCESS. No Chromebooks. No tablets.
- Safety Glasses for Each Member
- Extension Cord
