Toros Take Flight

Students in the Academy of Leadership in Emerging Technologies took their Tello EDU drones for their first outdoor flight. Students controlled the drones using an app on their cellphones with the future goal of flying the drones autonomously using preloaded code. Recent classroom work has included learning rules and regulations surrounding flight, learning about weather conditions, and the basic principals of flight. The mission students were tasked with was to use the drone’s built in camera to take a picture of our school.
