This course involves the construction of a Quadcopter with a mounted aerial camera for surveillance. It is a complete engineering project which under normal circumstances could take weeks to complete. This gives the students a prestigious CREST award and is a Level 3 course over 2 days. The engineering and programming elements are considerably enhanced in this course.
Engineering Learning: Students will learn the whole engineering process from design, to build, to test and finally improve. The students will learn a huge range of mechanical and control skills.
Programming Learning: Students will learn how to control a Quadcopter using Python commands and integrate this into the operation of an aerial camera.
Age suitability: 13 to 18 years
Cost per student: £97.50 per student
This course gives the student the Level 3 certificate in robotics. It also gives the students the ability to gain a Crest Award
