Drone Coding Studio

Experience the thrill of flight and accomplishment as you learn to program Parrot drones using Tynker's intuitive visual coding. Pilot drones through extreme maneuvers, grasping objects and flying aerial combat missions all with the power of code. Watch your child's confidence soar as they learn to write programs that bridge the gap from the digital to the physical world.

How this course works: Students sign in to their Tynker accounts from a Chromebook or desktop computer and complete a Tynker lesson online. Then, they sign-in to their account from the Tynker app on a shared iPad device. The DIY projects will be available under the "My Projects" section in their app. They will be able to modify and run the programs on the iPad to control the accessory via Bluetooth. You can share one or two tablets between all students in a classroom and they can take turns controlling the accessary.

Recommended Accessories: This course requires a physical drone and a tablet (each sold separately).

No experience with coding or flying drones is required.
