Session I (Friday) [clear filter]
Friday, August 9

4:00pm PDT

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a... drone?
An introduction to flying robots! This session will get participants acquainted with drones & UAVs. You'll get up to speed on what they are, how they work, and what they can be used for. We'll learn a little about selecting good drones for libraries, with special attention given to durability and cost. You'll get an overview (pun intended) of flight basics, laws, and safety. We will then look at developing programs for all ages, including best practices, lessons learned, and ideas for community partnerships.

Participants will leave the session with an understanding of drone fundamentals, develop criteria for choosing drones for library programs, and be prepared to design drone programs at their home library.
