Maker Kids Drone Afterschool Camp – Ages 11-17

October 12 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Build, fly and take home your own drone!

Build, fly and take home your very own drone in this 6-session workshop for ages 11-17. This program runs on Wednesdays from 3:30pm-5:30pm.

Youth will get hands-on experience building every part of a micro drone that they can fly indoors or out! They will use design software to design several parts of the drone. Then they will use Yukonstructs’ 3D printers and laser cutters to bring their design to life. Youth will also wire and code their drone while learning about computer and electrical engineering.

About Your Instructors:

Elias is a 4th year computer and electrical engineering student at Delouse. He enjoys creating new and exciting things in every area of Yukonstructs’ Makespace. Elias has run the summer programs for Yukonstruct and is passionate about getting youth excited about engineering and learning how to make cool things.
