Middle schoolers invited to free Summer Drone Camp
Central Oregon Community College invites Jefferson County middle school students to Summer Drone Camp.
Camp will be 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday, Aug. 23-26 at the COCC Madras Campus, 1170 E. Ashwood Road in Madras.
The free camp is offered to students ages 10 to 15 throughout Jefferson County.
This program is filled with pure action as students enjoy one of the world's fastest-growing pastimes – drones. Campers will learn about basic safety of drone flying and will progress through various skill challenges. Students will have the opportunity to code a drone and execute their code on Tello drones that will fly autonomously.
The drone camp is offered free of charge and is supported by a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation.
