DRONE WORKSHOPS

DRONE WORKSHOPS

Kolibri drone

KOLIBRI

Age: 12+ (8 years with a parent)

Participants: 20

Time: 1-3 hours

This workshop focuses on learning how to build and fly a 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.

 

What you learn:

  • Basic electricity principles

  • Basic functions of a drone

  • Techniques required to fly a drone

AIR:BIT

Age: 11+

Participants: 20

Time: 3 hours+

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:

  • About components, motors, propellers, battery and sensors 

  • Block or java-programming in Make:code

  • Real-time measurements of temperature, acceleration and battery voltage

  • 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.

MD2, CLASSIC QUADCOPTER

Age: 12+

Participants: 20

Time: 4-6 hours

Are you interested in technology? Do you want to learn how to build and fly your own drone from scratch? This workshop includes a kit consisting of a 500g quadcopter where you learn about all the basic components and how to manage the drone by using different settings and configurations on the flight controller. The participants can choose to take different roles, such as electrician, assembler, programmer and pilot.

What you learn:

  • Basic components such as motors, regulators, flight controller, batteries, propellers, radio and frame

  • Radio signals and flight directions

  • Batteries, power distribution and charging

  • Gyro and stabilization

  • Flight training and security

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

USELESS ROBOTS

Age: 8+ (children under 11 years must                 bring a parent)

Participants: 10

Time: 2-3 hours

This workshop is about learning how a robot can solve a meaningless problem, by using micro:bit. By identifying the problem, you will learn how to design your own robot which will solve the problem for you.

 

What you learn:

  • Idea development, design and problem solving

  • Motory skills

  • How to code with make:code (block-programming) 

  • How electricity works

This workshop is suitable for interdisciplinary work in science, mathematics and arts and crafts, as well as elective courses such as programming and technology in practice.

DESIGN AND BUILD

Age: 10+ (younger children can join                        together with a parent)

Participants: 20

Time: 2-4 hours

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.
