Meet CoDrone EDU
A Drone Made for Learning
Programming languages: Blockly and Python
What you'll learn: Drones, flight, accelerometers, gyroscopes, LEDs, color sensors, obstacle detection, sound, block coding, text-coding
The CoDrone EDU is a programmable drone, meant for learning in the classroom. Code it in Python or start from the basics with block-based coding. Unique to this drone are its color sensors, a front range sensor, a bottom range sensor, among others—all usable in code. With a durable and safe frame, programmable lights, and access to its 7 sensors, it's an excellent learning too and a great way to learn coding and engineering skills.
Comes in a set of 10 individual CoDrone EDU kits.
Each individual CoDrone EDU kit includes:
- 1 CoDrone EDU
- 1 Smart Controller
- 2 rechargeable batteries
- 1 2-battery charger
- 1 micro USB cable (to USB-A port)
- 1 set of extra propellers (2 clockwise, 2 counter-clockwise)
- 1 small screw driver and bolt
- 1 Quickstart Guide
- 1 set of labels for your drone and controller
- 8 color landing pads
Note: AA batteries not included.
30-Min Onboarding Course Included
A 30-minute Onboarding virtual course is included with this set. Schedule a 30-minute timeslot where we will walk you through where all of our learning resources are, such as our lesson portal, lesson plans, coding platforms, documentation, and where to find support. We highly recommend this for all educators using our CoDrone EDU in their classroom. In order to make the information timely, the Onboarding course expires 1 year after purchase. Ideally, you should schedule your onboarding course within a few weeks of when you plan to use the CoDrone EDU in your classroom, so the knowledge is fresh.
So Which CoDrone Should You Get?

Minimum System Requirements
If you're planning to use Blockly, make sure to check the minimum system requirements.
We recommend a 1:1 student to device ratio, and at most a 2:1 ratio.
