The Drone Thinking Initiative

IDP J000: Interterm with Drones!

We are moving forward with our idea of running a week-long j-term course here at Smith!

The course will cover all the basics of UAV operation, maintenance, and – most importantly – safety, for the users and those around them.  No prior knowledge?  No problem!  We’ll teach you everything you need to know.

Potential projects include:

  • Taking a drone selfie
  • Obstacle course navigation
  • Using a drone to capture images/video footage

Rumor has it there’s a spring break research trip to go with it – but you can only go if you take the course!

Check back soon for more updates!
