We are using Parrot minidrones to develop team working alongside Engineering Habits of Mind. Supported by the Intitution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engieers we are delivering into KS2 and KS3.
Using Tynker to directly program the Parrot minidrone to overcome increasingly complex challenges will develop many aspects engineers think about. Seeing coding literally come to life, working out how to come up with a plan, make decisions, test and refine are all part of the fun.
Tynker provides intuitive coding for the very youngest of learners all the way through to some of our 70+ year olds!
For those who are very familiar with this type of code, we can extend the learning using Swift using the playground from Parrot using Apple iPads
Let them loose with their creativity, imagination and sense of fun. Learning quickly through trial and error and developing experience to use on the next challenge.
At the core of this project is team working and Engineering Habits making it a fantastic STEM addition as well as team building session.
