The first app created to control the drone was what we called "Hello Drone"! The code blocks used launched the drone, went up 100 cm, make a 360 degree turn, them finally land.
Every club member completed the app and successfully launched the Hello app.
Drone Skills in High Demand
Jobs in Drone technology are on the increase. This semester the Girls Who Code club will learn how to control drones with code. Drones are used in the following areas:
Tello EDU Drone
The Tello EDU drone teaches coding in Scratch, Swift and Python. Students can even program a “swarm” of Tellos if you choose (see video above). In addition to being able to program a single Tello or a swarm of Tellos, the drones come with new Mission Pads. These are unique guiding points that can trigger the Tello to respond how you want. You simply program the Tello EDU to respond when it flies over the Mission Pad.
for more information of Tello Edu Drones see https://www.ryzerobotics.com/tello-edu
Students can program multiples Tello EDUs simultaneously through one device. Use code to control a swarm of Tello EDUs, have them fly over Mission Pads, and perform flips and other acrobatic movements. Improve your programming skills while pushing the limits of your creativity!
Tello Edu drone is an ideal companion for anyone engaged in STEAM-based learning. The drone provides precise and stable flying thanks to DJI’s cutting-edge flight technology. And the Tello Edu app together with Swift Playgrounds help you learn to write code to program the drone. The Tello Edu app has a colourful interface complete with educational features and visual programming. It pairs with your iPhone or iPad to offer complete control of Tello Edu while simplifying its manoeuvres.
The Girls Who Code club focuses on learning different programming languages. We focus on language basics & the deployment process. Web apps and phone apps are the two categories we have focused on thus far.
This semester we are focusing on how code can control Drones, Robots, and Internet of Things Devices!
