Annapolis, Maryland (PRWEB) June 28, 2017
Drobots Company, a national leader in providing kids and teens with interactive summer camp experiences, announced this week that it has initiated its rollout in 18 states and nearly 50 cities across the country. Drobots aims to revolutionize summer program offerings by combining technology, education, innovation, and teamwork to provide kids in grades 2-12 with an unforgettable experience and to move them away from computer screens to the outdoors.
“Drone technology provides an ideal way to engage kids and teens in multiple areas of their learning,” says Robert Elwood, founder and CEO of Drobots. “Giving kids the chance to fly drones for most of the program leads to mastering skills associated not only with STEM, but also with innovation and practical application of cutting-edge technology.”
With the slogan, Where Technology Meets Fresh Air(TM), Drobots offers enrichment camp sessions, in which kids and teens learn the history, fundamentals, and real-world applicability of drone and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) flight and technology. The programs are led by drone industry professionals, experts, and instructors who capture critical skills including safety, responsibility, basic engineering, flight challenges, conceptual design, entrepreneurial solutions, and technology business application.
“This program was perfect for my daughter, who held her own with all the boys and learned that science can be fun -- what a great way to teach technology and innovation,” says Jonathan P How, an MIT professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Participants of Drobots camps utilize imagination, hand-eye coordination, and STEM applications to conquer challenges and missions – all in a team-oriented environment.
