ISTE 2016: Drones at CTN Playground

June 23, 2016 — < 1 minutes

With Dallas reaching a heat index of around 106 today, it is an understatement to say we’re excited to head to Denver for ISTE 2016. Part of the DroneBlocks team and a teacher ambassador from Dripping Springs ISD will be available at the CTN Playground to provide flight simulation demonstrations and answer questions about launching a drone program!

The CTN Playground is focused around ideas, issues and practical examples which support our mission of teaching and learning about computing. Areas included are computer science and information technology. From a degree, program or career perspective, this would include the ACM Curriculum areas of Computer Science, Software Engineering, Information Technology, Information Systems and Computer Engineering.

We are grateful that Karen North and Joe Kmoch invited us to be part of the CTN Playground! The CTN Playground is on Sunday, June 26 from 12:30-4:00pm located in CCC Concourse. If you cannot attend ISTE this year, we have you covered! You’re invited to follow along by joining the DroneBlocks facebook group.
