Today’s children are already immersed in this technological world and their interests and behavior patterns are already part of this universe. The main challenge of contemporary education is to ensure that they will be able to acess learning processes that enables them to develop logical reasoning and proactivity.
In addition to the academic content taught by the school, it is important that the student participates in extracurricular activities that can provide them with spontaneous development of characteristics such as intelligence, creativity, leadership and the importance of group work, etc..
At DroneKids, we offer an innovative and fun concept course for 8- to 12-year-olds in which the methodology was built to challenge students to learn and apply content and skills for real projects that they do not just use, but create new discoveries. Through Me to We philosophy, combined with the STEAM concept, the structure of the course encourages the student to work as a team and develop their potentialities using the technology of Mini Drones, learning how they work, what are their applications and specially learning to pilot these equipments in practical classes. Students will be able to experience the feeling of flying while they operate the Drones with their Virtual Reality goggles. A unique experience!!!
But what does STEAM mean (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math)? Developed in the United States, the methodology proposes to put the student as a “knowledge builder”, combining concepts from these disciplines. In addition, it also offers the opportunity to improve the child’s cognition and facilitate his or her learning in school.
As you embark on this playful, engaging and challenging adventure provided by the DroneKids courses, the student will develop a better analytical understanding – but will also have fun with such proposed activities as Drone Racing. Considered the Formula 1 of the future, it provides the opportunity to participate in championships around the world.
In DroneKids Junior Pilot course, with a 32-hour workload during the school year, with 1 hour of class per week, children will be encouraged to use their skills with new technologies for piloting Racer Mini Drones using of FPV (First Person View). In other words, see what your Drone sees!
