3D Modeling and Drone Camp: Exploring Geospatial Technology
July 29 – August 2 | 9:00am – 12:00pm (Drone) and 1:00pm – 4:00pm (3D)
3D Modeling: Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) is one of the fastest growing STEM fields. Students will explore this field by learning how to design, prototype, build and test 3D printed parts using the latest software and hardware. This activity is for beginners, but it provides a building block for learning about rapid product development, fast prototyping and careers such as industrial design, manufacturing, and human factors.
Drone Camp: This program involves hands on training on the flying, responsible use and many practical applications of the technology to agriculture. Students will learn how to plan missions, collect aerial images and create custom maps using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) technologies. Particular attention is paid to how drones provide the ability to create highly accurate aerial photos and maps with GPS and GIS software. Students will learn how these aerial photos and maps can be used for environmental monitoring, time sensitive event mapping and vegetation analysis.”
Age: This camp is for students entering 6th-8th grades.
