Now that the work’s over, it’s time for fun! But not just any type of fun. Check out ripplecreate’s year-end holiday camps to let your child discover a different type of enjoyment. The kind that involves computational thinking, involves experiential learning and promises lots of brain-stimulating fun!
How do helicopters stay up? How do aeroplanes fly? By learning from the humble drone, your child can gain many insights into how larger aircraft work. In this course, your child will experiment with aerodynamics by designing their own flying aircraft, and tweaking it for optimal performance. They can further apply their understanding through a unique and thrilling experience – flying a fully-featured airplane in digital flight simulator!
With their understanding of planes, your child will then move on to drones, learning all about the magic that goes into making a quadcopter work. Not only will they see and put together the fundamental components that go into a drone’s construction, they will learn about the science behind what allows a drone to stay aloft. Your child can then take this knowledge a step further through automated unmanned operations, by using a simple block-based programming language to program the quadcopter.
Expect your child to have a better appreciation of the science that goes into drone construction and operation, in addition to a keen awareness of the safety considerations and responsibilities behind drone operation.
