Teambuilding

Age: +
With or without adults

1-5h

Collaboration and relationship building is just as important as professional input in a company. Gather your team and do something fun and creative to boost your team spirit!

At this workshop you and your team will learn how to build and fly a quadcopter from scratch. You can choose from two different courses – easy and advanced.

EASY COURSE:

Participants: 20
Time: 1-3 hours

This course focuses on learning how to build and fly a Kolibri drone. Kolibri is a simplified micro-building kit with a small, 50g, quadcopter.

You will fly the drone by using the included remote control. Because of its size, this drone requires relatively little space and you can fly it just as well inside as outside.

ADVANCED COURSE:

Participants: 20
Time: 4-6 hours

How about gathering your team to learn how to build and fly your own drone from scratch?

This workshop includes a kit consisting of a 500g quadcopter and you get to learn about all the basic components and how to fly the quadcopter by using different settings and configurations in the flight controller.

Design & Make a Drone

Age: 10 +
With adults under 10
20
4h

At this workshop, you can design and create your own drone with a laser cutter and 3D printer.

Laser cutter:

You will draw the frame from scratch in Fusion 360 or Google SketchUp, which you then laser cut. Instructions will be given throughout the workshop.

3D print:

The drone frame can be 3D printed, or made of ice rods or other 3D printed parts. To prepare the files for the printer, we use programs as Fusion 360, Google SketchUp, slic3r or Cura.

Air:bit

Age: 11 +
With or without adults
20
6h

In this workshop you will learn how to build and manage the Air:bit drone.

We will focus on how to use the micro:bit as a sender and receiver.

You will learn how to code and program the micro:bit to send short text based user inputs over radio, and modify the receiver to move the Air:bit drone when an incoming text is received. This by using block-programming in Make:code.

What you learn:

  • Components, motors, propellers, battery and sensors
  • Block or java-programming in Make:code
  • Real-time measurements of temperature, acceleration and battery voltage
  • PID controller
  • Designing and printing your own drone frame
  • Mathematics: geometry, functions and scaling

 

This workshop is suitable for interdisciplinary work in science, mathematics, engineering, technology, arts and crafts, physics, ethics and language subjects as Norwegian and English.
