Sign up For Drone Camp! Summer Camp on Exploring Geographic Information Systems

Interested in learning to fly Drones? Have you ever wondered how drones can be used in agriculture, or how you could use this exciting technology in college? This program involves hands on training on the flying, responsible use and many practical applications of the technology to agriculture. Students will learn how to plan missions, collect aerial images and create custom maps using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) technologies.

Particular attention will be paid to how drones provide the ability to generate agriculture themed maps that can be updated and shared week to week. These maps enable conservation of resources and economic savings through examination of water use, fertilizer application, pesticide use and crop health.  Attendees will earn two college credits.

June 20th – 24th @ Harrisburg University

Other Drone Camps are being planned and locations and dates will be announced.

This is the first of several Summer Exploration Camps.  Each camp takes a unique look at a field of science or technology, or the business of science and technology. While learning is the key goal for these day camps, you’ll be surprised how much fun you can have letting your imagination run wild with the potential inventions, technologies, or scientific issues you can explore. Plus many of these non-residential camps allow you to earn college credits.

These camps are for incoming high school students through high school seniors. All the camps are day camps and are scheduled to run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students should come to camp with food, snacks and drinks for the day. Registration for these camps closes 30 days prior to the start of each camp.
