In recent days, drones have created a lot of buzzes all over the world. Drones find their applications in various fields such as Agriculture, Delivery, Construction, Engineering, Media, Environmental monitoring and so on. Drones have the capability to execute some pretty stuff.
It is predicted that drone-related jobs are going to boom in the coming years because of its wide range of applications. Also, drones are used in education to educate various 21st-century skills and STEM concepts for kids.
This blog talks about the role of drones in STEM education, STEM drone kit for kids and some drone classes and summer camp for kids in Hyderabad.

Instead of teaching STEM for kids via boring lectures, most of the schools nowadays started implementing drones in their curriculum. Drones are used as a hands-on tool for teachers to teach STEM for kids as kids are also more excited about drones.
STEM education for kids is directly related to economic growth and social development of a country. Thus to spark the interest in STEM education for kids innovative teaching methods need to be used. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects are generally considered as difficult by kids because these subjects are taught through traditional lectures.
Kids show more interest in practical education rather than the theoretical one. Drone technology involves multiple subjects like programming, electronics, mechanical and so on. With the help of drones, kids can learn various subjects practically. Following are some of the benefits of using drones as a tool to teach kids:

Drones are complex machines and not all the drones will be suitable for kids. Also, kids will find it difficult to control the normal drones. By considering the kids in mind affordable STEM drones are launched in the market which is easy to control and gives them the opportunity to learn coding as well. Following are some of the best STEM drones for kids:

Hyderabad is one of the IT hotspots of India. It also has the largest Amazon campus in the world. Thus kids of Hyderabad are already aware of the technological advancements. The following drone classes and summer camps in Hyderabad will help them to acquire more knowledge:
Kids will start with the basics of drones such as:
Kids will learn all these concepts practically by conducting various experiments. After getting enough knowledge on basics kids will start the drone building. While building the drone kids will be introduced to drones parts such as propeller, flight controller, battery, motors, etc.
Sensors like accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, barometer, etc. play a major role in the stability of the drone. Kids will learn the working and applications of sensors practically by conducting the following experiments like spirit level, colour wheel and so on.
After building the drone successfully kids will program the drone using C++ (for expert kids) or visual block-based scratch programming (for beginner kids) and develop different drone projects like - Chuck to fly, Open sesame, Reactive drone, Phone clone, etc.
As part of this drone class, kids will also learn to fly the drone (most exciting part of this drone training program). Initially, kids will get trained in a simulator and they will fly the model in real time.
They will learn and test various flight modes like Altitude hold mode, Self-level mode, Auto mode, Throttle mode, Acro mode, etc. practically.
Skyfi Labs conducts all these classes in live 1-1 online sessions interactively with the help of STEM drone kits. Experienced trainers will teach all the drone concepts from basics. Also, these classes are conducted privately the tutor can alter the speed of the session based on the kid’s response.
To get more details about these classes, book a free trial where our trainer interacts with your kid and finds out his/her interest then suggest the suitable class.
