Class Description

Learn all about drones, flying technologies, and the science of flight! We will fly small but robust (and safe!) drones with attached cameras and transmitters, as well as learn flight concepts by building models to fly in our wind tunnel! Learn about how drones are being used for conservation, search and rescue, weather study, and even on plans for use on other planets! Are you ready to become an aeronautical engineer?

Class Structure: Grades 4-7

Our Big Nerds classes for grades entering 4-7, have 2 types: regular classroom classes and computer lab* classes. The regular classroom classes run very similarly in format to the Little Nerds classes, essentially lesson, building/work, break, lesson, building/work.

Our computer lab* classes are Graphic Design, Virtual Reality, Coding Games, and 3D Printing. All of them require design or coding software that we provide account access for. The class will be based around learning that software to design or code the assigned projects. In addition to instruction on the software, all of these classes include lessons about how to connect what we are learning to the real world. There may be some building of physical projects mixed in, and we will certainly take breaks, but the majority of the class is spent working in the lab.

*We strongly recommend against taking 2 computer lab classes in the same week. It’s too much sitting and screen time! Mix and match with a non computer lab class if your nerd stays all day!
