Become a recreationally certified drone pilot!
In order to fly a drone (quadcopter, tricopter, helicopter, RC plane, etc... you need to complete the TRUST certificate training (according to the Federal Aviation Association, the FAA). Here is a link to that test. Be sure to save the certificate, because you cannot access it later.
Please note: There are many laws that pertain to drone operation. For my students in West Chicago, IL, the entire town is in controlled airspace and you cannot fly very high and are supposed to tell the airport when you are flying outdoors. I will provide more resources later regarding these regulations.
After learning to basics on code.org now you can apply your skills on scratch! Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.
