Skyworks Aerial Systems has created a new educational drone kit that has been put together to empower the next generation of Dronesmiths, says Skyworks.
The kit has been designed to be easy to assemble and enable users to start getting their hands on programming their own custom drone applications without any delay.
In the video below the creators of the innovative educational drone kit explain their inspiration behind the design and what they hope to achieve by publishing it on Kickstarter. To raise the required $100,000 in funding the team needs to take their design to market.
“Students are our inspiration. From our experience with STEAM outreach, we find that students are excited about emerging drone technology and become highly engaged when they can do hands-on projects. Lots of them have unique ideas and want to develop valuable skill sets so they can work with drones in the future. We want them to gain the confidence to become a future Dronesmith, so we created an easy toolbox for them to start learning and creating – The Eedu Dronesmith Kit.
Eedu is an easy-to-use drone kit. Designed with simplicity in mind, it’s a hardware and software platform that enables inventors who want to create new drone applications. We call these innovators Dronesmiths.
Drones can be more than just flying cameras. Give it a nose for sniffing out hazardous material, temperature sensors for feeling heat, or any other sensor to make exciting applications. Eedu puts you in the designer’s seat”
