Drone Fun, Safety, and Security

Kids will learn the basic commands to issue a robot so that the robot can achieve the desired goal. Flash cards with commands and drawings will be handed out for use. A small “program” will be created out of these commands and we will then model these actions based on role play - initially with the trainer being the Robot, and then the kids taking turns in small groups. The aim is to teach kids basic procedural steps and show what can go wrong by using fun examples.
