Aerodynamics for kids
By flying the drone kids will understand the basics of aerodynamics for instance when they try to make some manoeuvre the spinning of the propeller changes as drone requires specific aerodynamics to fly.
Cognitive development and Critical thinking
Whether flying a drone inside or outside requires a better understanding of the controllability of drones. This improves the kid’s cognitive ability and decision making under pressure.
Introduction to Coding and Electronics
STEM drone kits allow kids to master programming as well where they can program the drone to fly it in specific flight patterns and different flight modes. They will also get an opportunity to learn the electronics used in drones.
Skyfi Labs helps students learn practical skills by building real-world projects.
You can enrol with friends and receive kits at your doorstep
You can learn from experts, build working projects, showcase skills to the world and grab the best jobs.

Bangalore is considered as the IT capital of India and the kids who live in Bangalore have the desire to explore new technologies as they are surrounded by the modernized environment. Drones training programs is the best way to fulfil the need of the Bangalore kids
Drone training allows kids to explore the basics of drones. They will get an exposure to the different parts of drones such as propellers, batteries, flight controllers, motors, etc. After exploring the components kids will build a drone and test their stability and operations.
Kids will also understand about various flight modes of drones such as - Altitude hold mode, Auto take-off, Auto-land, Throttle mode, etc. by performing real-time experiments
Also, they will learn to program the drone with the help of two different programming languages:
scratch based block programming for beginner kids and C++ programming for expert kids. In this drone training program, all the concepts are taught from basics so all skill levels are welcome. By exploring the latest technologies at an early age will actually develop the entrepreneurial skills in kids.
Drone training for kids is designed for various age groups. Following are the drone programs for kids in Bangalore from age 8 plus to 14 plus:
In this Drone training program, kids are also trained to fly the drone with the help of a controller which makes this program more entertaining. Since drone piloting is considered as a major skill nowadays this drone training program paves the way for a bright future in the drone industry for kids.
These days kids spend a lot of time indoors with computer and mobiles than outdoors so by enrolling kids in these drone training programs make them get outside and explore the drone technology with fun.
We at Skyfi Labs designed these drone training programs based on the 21st century STEM skill requirement also these Drone training programs for kids are conducted on a one-on-one live session which ensures 100% focus and attention over your kid during the entire session.

Skyfi Labs offers training programs for kids on other innovative technologies as well check the below links for more information.
As per the DGCA regulations, drones that weigh less than 250 gms can be flown without having any license. Most of the kid’s drones weigh less than 250 grams so there is no issue in flying it. Kids can fly their drones in an enclosed area like inside their home, shuttle court, tennis court, school grounds, etc.
But the ceiling level of the drone should not exceed more than 200ft. Also, drones should not be flown near military installations, populated spaces, airports and private properties.
It is advisable to keep the drone away from the site of cops otherwise they will find a reason to seize the drone.
Following are some places in Bangalore that you can take your kid to explore more about aviation:
You can take your kid to Jakkur Aerodrome located near Yelahanka to experience the beautiful aerial view of Bangalore on a microlight aircraft.
Next is the HAL Museum, a place that teaches the aviation history of India and it includes various static aero models of vintage aeroplanes and helicopters.
Opposite to HAL museum you can also spot military aircraft from the HAL airport. If your kid is lucky he/she will also get a chance to see India’s advanced fighter jets and military helicopters in action.
