This workshop is open to students age 12 to 18 (Grade 6-12)
OmniView Tech is excited to introduce our Drone Engineering Workshops. This workshop is for students interested in learning how the concepts studied in the classroom can be applied in the real world. We're conducting a 16-hour Engineering Design and Build Workshop in partnership with Ontario Academy Of Technology.
Next Course Period: July 2017 Enrollment begins today!
This course is a comprehensive dive into the world of unmanned aerial systems with a particular focus on the hottest growing sport of drone-racing. Students will acquire both practical and technical skills with regards to how a drone operates, all its key components, flight-programming, and electrical engineering. Students will also have an opportunity to build their very own racing drone, understand its inner workings, engineer and tune its software, and more importantly, learn how to fly and operate their machine safely. At the end of the course, the students will have a thorough understanding of the role of each part and component of the drone, know how to program the software and test it in the real world, and learn best practices of flying and drone safety tips. Students will take home the racing drone that they built and can continue to apply their knowledge for fine-tuning and experience endless hours of flying fun.
