Student Council Event
EIPS Drone Camp A Success
One of our very own students, Katherine G. had the opportunity to attend the camp. Here is her experience in her very own words:
"At drone camp this past weekend (April 29 and 30), I learned a lot about flying drones and what kind of stuff the drone industry is about. The first day was a lot of piloting, we ended up making an obstacle course to fly through at the end. The second day was about half photography/videography and half coding. The photography part was simple but probably my favorite, we got to try out a bunch of different angles and types of shots. The coding was harder, but my group did pretty well and we were able to troubleshoot and get it to work. Overall, I had a good time and am happy to have a skill I might be able to use for making videos in the future."
