Drones 4 Girls teaches kids in grade 4, 5 and 6 to build, code and fly mini drones.

Each mini drone weighs a mere 40 ounces and battery powers 8-10 minutes of flight time. These little wonders fit in the palm of your hand. Flown in an indoor space, mini drones Mini drone kits come in 9-12 parts that are easily assembled.

February 2019, a three-hour workshop equipped teachers and other professional to be drone pilot leaders. They learned how to operate a mini drone, attempted remote control flight using their cell phone, and attempted to navigate Fly Zone challenges.

June 2019, Drones 4 Girls and Girls Who Code joined forces to challenge young minds in Shreveport, Lousiana, for three days. Day session were filled with kids learning about flight safety and applied their coding skills to navigating mini drones through aerial courses. One evening session was held for adults to learn some of the same basics and discuss next steps towards sustainable growth and securing jobs as drone pilots.

A big part of knowing what your strength and career possibilities are, lies buried under EXPOSURE. Kids may not know about jobs of the future because they don’t see everyone around them using that technology… yet. Drones 4 Girls will introduce these amazing machines to boys + girls in grades 4, 5 or 6.

Showing kids what an aerial drone looks like and talking about a few things it can do is only the beginning. Demonstrations in school classrooms will bring the technology front and center to help kids explore the basics of math, physics and technology.

Drones 4 Girls will shows them a fun tool they can use to teach elements of the curriculum. This will happen through a flight / curriculum orientation that helps teachers get the drones out of the box and into their classroom. Doing that spreads the technology to thousands of children over the course of those educators’ career.

By keeping class demos and teacher meetups FREE, we can ease the financial burden on heavily taxed public schools.
