Parrot turns Mini Drones into STEM learning tools for kids

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, July 21, 2016

Parrot is helping kids learn with drones.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.   Parrot is the maker of some of the most popular drones for consumers and drone toys.      The company’s Bebop Quadcopter is fun and easy to use and takes great HD video or stills.   Now Parrot is using its technology to help kids learn.  Director of Education Jerome Bouvard…

“We have a wide range of activities and applications for kids or students to learn something using the drones.  For we have a new, an exclusive coding curriculum with our partner Tinker.  It’s an application for kids to learn programming using visual blocks and they will be able to not only create programs on their computer or tablets using visual blocks, but they will pilot and control the drones with a program they just created.”

Cool stuff.   There’s more info at edu.parrot.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
