DRONEMASTERS Junior Academy
The DRONEMASTERS Junior Academy offers playful access to digitization and aerodynamics through drones and drone racing. Children and teenagers between the ages of 10 and 15 learn to fly on sight and through video goggles in our workshops under the guidance of experienced trainers and coaches using various age-appropriate drone systems. During the workshop, the juniors will also get an insight into the programming and technical optimization of drones.
The workshops aim to get children and teenagers excited about drone technology. The juniors will learn about physical basics of flying, get to know the structure and technique of drones and compete in their own final race. In all areas of the workshop, the juniors are encouraged to develop their own ideas and to find individual solutions. We attach great importance to the development of technical skills and understanding of the design of simple electronic circuits. The courses address several key learning outcomes for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. All knowledge is taught in a playful and age-appropriate way.

The DRONEMASTERS are once again organizing several Junior Academy workshops this year. We are thus continuing the successful series of events from the last two years and giving children and young people access to a future-oriented technology.
The workshops during the summer holidays are held over five days. The workshops during the Easter and autumn holidays cover four days and teach the same knowledge in condensed form.
The workshop takes place between 9am and 4pm.

How it all started
The first workshop was organized by the DRONEMASTERS Junior Academy in August 2017. This culminated on September 3rd at the DRONEMASTERS Convention 2017. The young “racers” flew on a racetrack, which consisted of self-built obstacles and were finally awarded by the then Federal Minister of Economics Brigitte Zypries for their performance.
Due to the great success and the positive response from children and parents, we organized several workshops in 2018 and were thus able to inspire over 50 other children and adolescents for drones and the technology behind them. In 2019 there will be more workshops and we are already looking forward to all who will be there.
We would like to sincerely thank our supporters for the realization of this great success.
