Drone Racing In Detail
Drone Racing will teach you how to fly a micro-class racing drone in your house. You'll start off by learning to fly in the Velocidrone simulator, and then move on to flying the actual drone! You'll also learn how to configure your drone, and how to ensure you're staying safe whilst flying. By the end of the course, you'll be well on your way to becoming a drone racing champion!Our Tutors
We've brought together the best of our tutors to instruct and help the students. They're typically recent graduates or undergraduates studying Engineering or Computer Science at leading Russell-group Universities. Of course they're chosen for their communication and technical skills and have Enhanced DBS checks for working with children.
Engaging learning must be hands-on. Our 'At Home' programme offer a mix of video tutoring, collaborative learning and self-paced project work during and after the session to make sure that learning is deep, engaging and lasting.
At 4:30pm the Sunday before we’ll have a quick Zoom call, just to check everything is working ahead of our first lesson on Monday. Make sure you have a working webcam and audio system (microphone and speakers or a headset). All modern laptops (whether PC or Mac) have these inbuilt.
On the day, you’ll just need to click on the meeting link to join the meeting. It’s that easy! Your Tech Camp-certified tutor will be there with the rest of your classmates ready for the session to begin.
If you have any queries between the sessions we are only an email away! Feel free to ask us any questions and we'll help out if we can.
The online course was great and the tutor engaged with the children and helped them calmly and effectively - we were not needed at all. My son really enjoyed the course and did all of the extra challenges too.
