Drone at Code Club
We are putting our coding to the test at Code Club after school. pic.twitter.com/CcFi5Mg4PK— St Luke's Primary (@DustonStLukes) May 24, 2016
Recently i have been taking a Parrot minedrone and the Tickle App (https://tickleapp.com/en-us/) to Code Club session, as an extra activity.
For those there actually programmed something that flies and it is quite engaging - having something you are controlling being able to move in all directions.
I wish the mini-drone had a little bit more battery time (I would suggest getting an extra battery). Combining with the drone and the Tickle App does add something to the experience, rather than just control it directly (though that is fun). The noise is also not to everyone's taste so it has to be used carefully in that context, but also from a safety point of view.
