This hands-on workshop will begin with the assembly of a Parrot Mambo drone. Once assembled, participants will learn basic flight terminology and safety before using their own bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet to fly the drone. The remainder of the day will focus on an introduction to block coding to plan and execute a series of flights.
