The CoDrone EDU is a programmable drone, specially designed for learning in the classroom. You can program this CoDrone EDU in Blockly, a drag-and-drop, block-based programming language, or Python, one of the most popular programming languages used in STEM jobs. Unique to this drone are its color sensors, a front range sensor, and a bottom range sensor, among others—all usable in code. With a durable and safe frame, programmable lights, and access to its 7 sensors, it’s an excellent learning tool and a great way to learn coding and engineering skills.
The CoDrone EDU is designed to get its users up and moving. You can pair the CoDrone to its controller and fly, flip, dive, and perform challenging maneuvers before you even get into coding.
Each drone is recommended for a 2:1 ratio of student-to-device. 2.4 GHz RF communication with a 50-meter range. RF for better stability in the classroom. Classroom kits are intended for a classroom of 10 – 20 students.
RoboLink, the manufacturer, offers free lessons and great video-based directions to get you up and running easily.
