A Bismarck Career Academy teacher hosted Drone Camp this week.
Tim Meyer is the STEM and graphic design teacher who wrapped up the classes today.
Middle school students spent their morning building with legos.
They worked together to make and ultimately try to fly their own drone.
Flight simulators and quad hoppers were also available for the kids to learn to fly.
The camp was all about engineering and a little bit about flight history too.
Seventh Grader Logan Sampson says, “It’s a lot harder to fly a plane than you think and it’s harder to do drones.”
Rising Middle Schooler Logan Bailey adds, “You have to kind of balance out the weight, and you have to make sure that everything is out of the way, to make sure that nothing’s in the way of the fans so they can all fly equally.”
This camp is a part of a bigger movement to get students more involved in creative STEM related activities at a younger age.
