Drone Class

a collaboration between James Madison University, George Mason University, Old Dominion University and NOVA Labs

Overview

 Robotics is a growing field with significant impact on many aspects of our world. It is an area of enhanced interest for students and combines aspects from all the science disciplines.  The course will explore design and construction aspects of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV, quad copters).

 In order to tap in to real expertise the course enlisted the aid of NOVA engineers.  This a community of engineers in northern VA that have built a maker space so that people in the area could pursue their interest.  These engineers are running the class via the internet. We have shared internet space for course material.  The engineers can remotely instruct via linked projectors and cameras.  The Webex software is also used  as a method to connect students and NOVA engineers.
