• Your instructor: Addy Krom, computer science major
Computer engineering major at Case Western Reserve University (GPA: 3.77)
From coaching 12 year olds in ski racing to serving as a co-president, leading youth at an MIT climate summit, we can only imagine what Addy will bring to Drone & Code this summer.
Addy’s Boston Latin School Faculty Advisor, Cate Arnold has described them as dedicated, reliable, skilled and passionate. Take for example, their work on developing a floor tile that captures the energy imparted by walking on it. Consider the applications of this!
Experienced in Python coding, your child can expect some wicked cool flight challenges from Addy. Think object recognition, obstacle courses, payload lifts and more!
There are two versions of Drone & Code: one for 6th to 9th grade children and one for rising 3rd to 5th grade children.
Your child will first learn about the different sensors and electronic modules on drones and controllers. Next, using Python coding, campers will tackle several flight challenges, with hands-on testing, trials, and troubleshooting that demonstrate the scientific approach. Critical thinking, teamwork, and fun are part of every day’s activities! Coding experience or not, we will advance your child’s knowledge.
Note that this summer there will be separate sessions; one for rising third to fifth grade children and one for rising sixth to ninth grade children. Counselors in Training (CIT) may apply for either one and must be rising tenth to twelfth grade students.
No previous coding experience is required, but children with coding experience will be challenged according to their skill level.
Games and flight challenges make the experience fun and engaging! At the end of the week, your child gets to showcase their work to friends and family.
This hands-on applied science program is structured to keep your child engaged, while offering the freedom to explore, create, test, and problem-solve alone or with a buddy. It’s a perfect mix of coding, hardware, and three-dimensional space – plus you get to fly! Your child just might discover a new passion.
The week of July 4th is automatically prorated to account for a Tuesday to Friday session.
