Coding with Drones combines Tello drones and a library of application-based, scaffolded online curriculum resources for educators. With 100+ programming missions and 10 fully-reusable indoor drones, Coding with Drones perfectly melds computer science with one of the fastest-growing technologies, preparing learners for the drone-filled future. Students block code missions in DroneBlocks, test their code from anywhere in the DroneBlocks Tello Simulator and progress to line-coding in the exclusive DroneBlocks Code application. From applying algebra and geometry in flight missions to exploring Python and JavaScript programming, put the power of flight into the hands of learners with multiple coding languages and top-of-the-line mini drones.
