This skillshare introduced participants to autonomous drone flight. Students learned about basic python coding commands and then theywere tasked to come up with code to try to fly the drone autonomously through an obstacle. It covered exactly how the coding process works, a showcase with pre-written code and then students wrote their own code to automate flight.
