Set your child up for success in the real world by equipping them with the knowledge and skills of today with this Droneology Challenge 101 workshop.

This summer workshop is a fun route to experiencing and learning about technology, robotics and programming.  The program has a focus on building social and emotional literacy.

The STEM Leadership provides direction, introduction, and the discovery framework each workshop participant will follow to understand the planning and team collaboration required to execute a coordinated mission to survey and capture data from the Mars surface.

Youth will engage in a special mission to survey the Mars surface and collect data.  The mission will require team work from two engineering teams; TEAM INGENUITY (Drones) & TEAM ENDEVOUR (Rovers). Together they will plan and collaborate to execute the mission to its fullest and most expedient manner against competing teams.

Awards and recognition for team and individual achievements will be shared at the end of the mission challenge.

This is a unique gamified opportunity for youth ages 10 – 17 to learn about the NASA initiative that sent a drone and rover to Mars.

Registration deadline for youth to participation in this event is June 25, 2002
