This program is filled with pure action as students enjoy one of the world’s fastest growing sports, Drone Racing. Campers will first learn about the basic safety of drone flying and the history behind drone racing as a sport. From there, campers will progress through various skill challenges and learn how to perform numerous exercises and maneuvers to become familiar with the drone’s speed and agility. Flight squads will post up against one another in friendly competition when they race themselves and the clock. Students will first maneuver the drone through creative obstacle courses before taking on the challenge of flying for speed. Participants contribute fully in this program as they create the design and help build the obstacle course in preparation for the last day’s final activities and competition.
Greg Sesny is a physics teacher in Collegiate’s Upper School and this will be his second year teaching drone flying camps. Farley Macdonald is a Collegiate Middle School science teacher and has always had an interest in the sciences. He loves when students ask questions and enjoys figuring out how to build things and make them work.
