We teach children to build drones, solder microelectronics, model and print 3D objects, program and configure, understand video/radio signals and, of course, pilot sports drones.
Drone-based robotics is so exciting for children that they lose interest in computer games, and many new and more exciting things appear in their lives. Realizing that training is needed to achieve the result, a child starts using the computer in a completely different way and wisely allocating his time. Parents of our students often tell us about this.
In the camp we work with children with totally different levels of training. We do our best so that by the end of the shift the level of knowledge and skills of each child turned out to be significantly higher comparing to the beginning of the shift. And most importantly, that every child gets even more motivation to study further.
Flying a drone develops the child's ability to concentrate, reaction, stress resistance, spatial thinking, tactical and strategic thinking.
Drone races are held at speeds over 100 km/h. The drone needs to go through a track full of various obstacles, and the pilot needs to complete challenging aerobatic maneuvers. The winner is the one who comes to the finish line first.
The biggest victory of a schoolboy in drone racing is the victory of 15-year-old Luke Bannister (Great Britain) in the World championship 'World Drone Prix 2016' in Dubai. Luke took the 1st place and received a prize of 250,000 USD.

At 8 years old, everything works out with confidence. There are individual cases when children successfully started at the age of 6 and even at the age of 5, but this, of course, is an exception to the rule.
Could it be interesting for girls?
Yes, definitely. But so far girls make up only 5% of all students. We are looking forward to the brave girls who are interested in technology. By the way, one of the camp leaders is female pilot.
Are there any additional expenses?
No, there are no additional costs. Unless it is necessary to take the child to the camp from Riga or return to Riga after the shift.
If a child accidentally breaks something, do I have to pay for it?
No, these are our risks. We are well aware that this is inevitable in a learning process.
Is it possible to start without initial preparation?
Yes of course! And it is quite common that children begin their education right in the camp.
Is it possible not to take the child to the camp yourself, but to transfer him in Riga?
Yes it is possible. A transfer in one direction will cost 25 euros per child. It is necessary to order in advance.
If a child does not know Latvian, is it possible for him to participate?
The working language in the camp is Latvian. But our camp leaders, besides Latvian, are also fluent in Russian and English.
