The CoDrone EDU (JROTC edition) is a programmable drone, meant for learning in the classroom. It's the JROTC edition of our flagship drone, the CoDrone EDU, created specifically for JROTC funding requirements requirements, which you can read more about here. 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 (JROTC ed.) kits.

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 (JROTC ed.) 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 (JROTC ed.) in your classroom, so the knowledge is fresh.

So Which CoDrone Should You Get?

The short answer is: if you aren't JROTC, you can most likely get the standard edition of CoDrone EDU. Check out our blog post, for a more detailed comparison of the CoDrone EDU (JROTC ed.) to the CoDrone EDU.
