Will drones be the future for small package delivery?  Companies like Amazon, FedEx, UPS, Dominos’s Pizza think so and are investing heavily to test and commercialize this new technology.

What is EnvisionAir?

EnvisionAir is unlike any program available in the market today.  We go well beyond the traditional “Learn to Fly a Drone” program by inspiring kids to program their drones to deliver a payload and payload system designed and created by them using 3D printer technologies.  Our drone programs combine drones, 3D Design, 3D Printing, and coding.

Our EnvisionAir program consists of 6 levels.  It is not necessary to complete all levels.

  • Part I: Introduction to Drones
  • Part II: Drone Programming & Control
  • Part III: Special Delivery – Payload Design & Delivery
  • Part IV: Search & Rescue – Arial Rescue Platform (ARP) Design
  • Part V:  Obstacle Course – Advanced Programming and Control
  • Part VI:  Mastering the Sky with the DJI Mini 2

What skills to students learn?

Our programs are applied and packed with learning.  Students begin by learning basic drone control and safety with lots of time flying their drones.  Once they have mastered basic drone control they move to more advanced concepts and programs that include 3D designing/3D printing payload systems/rescue platforms, simulations and control of their drone through coding, and much much more.

Our aim is to align their learning with practical applications and uses in the real world.  We want them to become problem solvers equipped with new tools .

Do students keep their 3D designed/printed parts and components?

Yes!  Anything that students create here using 3D printers is theirs to keep.

What age group?

This program is open to students age 10 – 15 yrs.

What is the cost?  How many students?  What do the students need to bring?

Each class is instructor-led and enrollment is limited to 5 students per class.  Each Part consists of 8 classes that are 90 minutes each and the cost is $360 + HST.  Envision supplies all the equipment (i.e., drones, tablets, 3D printer, and other technologies.   Students do not need to bring anything!
