Drones - STEAM Scientists       

​Our collaboration with the Drobots Company creates innovative experiences that shift students between the excitement and hands-on activities of indoor learning and engineering with the freedom and exploration of the outdoors. Campers utilize imagination, hand-eye coordination, and STEAM applications to conquer challenges and missions in a team-oriented environment. Drobot campers at Summer at Park will receive education on the social responsibility of technology and learn about the ways in which drone technology can be used for good by citizen scientists.
