The Drobots Drone Overnight Camp is the only program of its kind offered during the summer. In a friendly, supportive, and positive learning environment, novice and experienced male and female students come together from around the country/world for a unique and focused week of drone and UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) flying, learning, and experimenting. Drobots’ adult-led professional educators and instructors expose and introduce participants to the most recent and relevant drone technology from within the UAV sector. Students then focus their knowledge to better understand the real-life applicability of how drones are positively impacting some of the world’s biggest challenges within: agriculture, utilities, energy, media and entertainment, delivery services, the internet, real estate, mapping, search and rescue, construction and engineering, sports, business, insurance companies and more.
Throughout the week, students will progress through learning, flying, solving, and creating. Teamwork, terminology, and communication are key components as students learn:
- How to safely build, fly, fix, and control a drone
- Perform mock industry-related missions (i.e. search & rescue)
- Create their own drone-based business model or friendly solution
- Interact with socially responsible and creative experts within the drone industry
- Learn how to race, code, and navigate drones through obstacle course missions
- Perform and create aerial mapping and models
- Produce photo/video using drone aerial footage and so much more.
While on campus, students will live in McDonogh dorms. Home to McDonogh students during the school year, Rollins Hall and Jane Bay are comfortable, secure residence halls for campers during the summer.
Whether you have ever flown a drone/uav or not, join the thousands of past and present Drobots’ participants to jump start your future this summer in one of the fasted growing industries since the internet. Please feel free to check out our web site at www.drobotscompany.com.
