CoDrone Mini Junior Badges Achievements

Junior Badges Achievements

Level 0

Perfect Landing Junior

Design a takeoff and landing pad area. Have your drone take off from the takeoff area and then land on the landing pad! The landing pad should be 12 x 12 inches or smaller, and it should be at least four feet away from the takeoff area. All four motors should be on the landing pad upon landing.

Bowling Junior

Use your CoDrone Mini as a bowling ball and get a strike! Make 10 bowling pins out of whatever materials you have on hand. Set the bowling pins up in a triangle at least 6 feet away from the starting point. To earn the badge, you must knock all ten pins over in one try.

Pushup Champion Junior

Have your CoDrone Mini complete 10 pushups in the shortest amount of time possible! A complete pushup is when the drone leaves the ground and touches the ground again. The drone must land before taking off for the next pushup.

Leapfrog

Play a game of leapfrog with your CoDrone Mini! Take turns crouching down and then hopping over each other. First, hop over your drone and then crouch down. Next, program your CoDrone Mini to take off, fly over you, and then land. Your CoDrone Mini should completely fly over you (no bumping into you!) and touch the ground in between hops. To earn this badge, the sequence should be done twice.

Slam Dunk Junior

Program your drone to take off from the ground, go up, go down through a hoop, and land on the ground! A basketball hoop must be made for this challenge. It does not need to be an actual hoop but it must be 18 inches (46 centimeters) in diameter and should be able to stay up through the challenge. The drone must start on the ground, go up, go down through the hoop, and land on the ground.

Level 1

Odd and Even

Design a takeoff and landing pad area. Have your drone take off from the takeoff area and then land on the landing pad! The landing pad should be 12 x 12 inches or smaller, and it should be at least four feet away from the takeoff area. All four motors should be on the landing pad upon landing.

Junior Dice Roll

Set a variable to a random number from 1-6. Program your CoDrone Mini to hop or flip the number of times the “dice” says after the variable is called in the program. Make sure to include a print statement so you can tell whether the number of moves is the same as the random number!

Staircase

Use loops to have your CoDrone Mini fly up and down a staircase! Write two loops: one so that your drone goes up the stairs, and another one so that it goes back down the stairs. Between the two loops, your drone should turn 180 degrees. You will need to complete this sequence twice. Don’t worry if you’re in a place that doesn’t have stairs! It only needs to look like your drone is going up and down stairs.

Level 2

Disco Drone

Turn your CoDrone Mini into a spinning disco ball, complete with flashing lights! Program your drone to take off and throttle up. Your drone should spin in place at least 5 times. Your LED should be a different color for each of the 5 rotations, although it can change multiple times during one rotation if you want!

Obstacle Course Junior

Make an obstacle course for your CoDrone Mini to go through. Program your keyboard to act as a remote control and see what you can do in 30 seconds! If it takes less time to go through, you should be prepared to fly your drone through the course more than once. Your course should include bridges to go over and under, something for the drone to fly through, and something for the drone to weave through. At the end, your drone should flip, dance, or flash its LED.

Secret Code

Use your LED and flight sequences to send your instructor a secret code. Use if statements to program your keyboard keys to perform different flight movements and flash LEDs. Make a codebreaker sheet for your instructor that explains what each movement means. For example, A = throttle up, B = blue light. To earn this badge, your instructor has to decode one of your messages correctly.

Learn CoDrone Mini

Codrone Mini box blockly

The CoDrone Mini is a miniature programmable drone. Fly it around and make it do acrobatics with the remote, with block coding using Blockly for CoDrone, or with text-based coding using Python. It’s even smaller than the CoDrone Lite/Pro, and comes at a more affordable price. With smaller propellers and thicker guards, this is a great drone to start learning about drones and coding for younger kids.

Learn CoDrone Lite

CoDrone Lite Seba Learning

CoDrone Lite is the same drone as CoDrone Pro, but without the complexity of the buildable remote controller.  Rather than programming in Arduino, everything is block-based coding.  A simpler, lighter package for the young drone programmer and pilot!

Learn CoDrone Pro

CoDrone and controller, outdoors

The CoDrone Pro does everything the CoDrone Lite does, but it also comes with an Arduino-compatible buildable remote. The CoDrone is a tiny quadcopter drone you can easily program to do whatever you want: follow you, engage in laser battles, go through a maze and more. Whether you are brand new to drones and coding or you’re a longtime drone lover, you will have a blast with the CoDrone.

Blockly Minimum Requirements

Blockly for Robolink

Blockly for Robolink logo

Blockly for Robolink is currently in beta.  It’s an online block-coding platform based on Blockly. You can currently use this to app control the CoDrone Pro/Lite and CoDrone Mini.

USE BLOCKLY WITH CODRONE PRO/LITE

Minimum system requirements (CoDrone Pro/Lite):

  • Chrome browser version 56 or later
  • Hardware that supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), which is different from Bluetooth Classic
  • For MacBooks, that means MacBooks from 2012 or newer. Older MacBooks only have Bluetooth Classic, but no BLE support.
  • For Windows machines, Windows 10, version 1703 or newer (Apr 5, 2017 update). Older Windows versions don’t support BLE. Check your Device Manager to see if your computer has BLE installed.
  • We’ve noticed issues specifically with the Bluetooth driver becoming disabled on these models after about 45 minutes of use: Acer Aspire 3 – A315-21, Acer Aspire 1 – A114-31, Acer Aspire 3 – A315-41, which can be temporarily fixed by re-installing the driver, though this isn’t an ideal user experience. This seems to be a known Bluetooth issue on some Windows machines.

USE BLOCKLY WITH CODRONE MINI

Minimum system requirements (CoDrone Mini):

  • Chrome browser version 80 or later
  • Chrome browser flag “#enable-experimental-web-platform-features” enabled, which can be reached at URL “chrome://flags” in the Chrome Browser

About

We Are Awesome

In an ideal world this website wouldn’t exist, a client would acknowledge the importance of having web copy before the design starts. Needless to say it’s very important, content is king and people are beginning to understand that. However, back over in reality some project schedules and budgets don’t allow for web copy to be written before the design phase, this is sad but true.

We’re here to help, we’ve written examples of web copy for over 40 industries for you to use at concept phase of your projects to bring a little life and realism to your designs and help you think about who and what you are designing for. We want clients and designers alike to think about their design and how it will work with the web copy, we want you think about how numbers.
