Unit Plan: Programming a Tello Drone using Python

Grade Level: Year 10

Subject: Computer Science

Duration: 4 weeks (10 lessons)

Lesson 1: Introduction to Drones and Python Basics - Introduce the concept of drones and their applications - Discuss the importance of programming in controlling drones - Introduce Python programming language and its relevance in drone programming - Teach basic Python syntax and concepts (variables, data types, loops, conditionals)

Lesson 2: Tello Drone Overview and Setup - Provide an overview of the Tello drone and its features - Explain the necessary hardware and software requirements for programming the Tello drone - Guide students in setting up the Tello drone and connecting it to their computers - Demonstrate how to install the necessary Python libraries for Tello drone programming

Lesson 3: Controlling the Tello Drone with Python - Introduce the Tello SDK and its functions for controlling the drone - Teach students how to establish a connection with the Tello drone using Python - Demonstrate basic commands to control the drone’s movement (takeoff, land, move forward/backward, rotate) - Provide hands-on practice for students to write Python code to control the Tello drone’s movements

Lesson 4: Advanced Drone Movements - Introduce more complex movements such as flipping, flying in a square pattern, and flying in a circle - Teach students how to use loops and conditionals to create more sophisticated flight patterns - Provide examples and exercises for students to practice advanced drone movements using Python

Lesson 5: Tello Drone Sensors and Data Retrieval - Explain the sensors available on the Tello drone (e.g., altitude, speed, battery level) - Teach students how to retrieve sensor data using Python - Demonstrate how to use the retrieved data to make decisions and control the drone’s behavior - Provide hands-on activities for students to write Python code to retrieve and utilize sensor data

Lesson 6: Autonomous Flight and Mission Planning - Introduce the concept of autonomous flight and mission planning - Teach students how to program the Tello drone to perform a sequence of actions autonomously - Demonstrate how to plan and execute a mission using Python code - Provide opportunities for students to design and implement their own autonomous flight missions

Lesson 7: Drone Programming Challenges - Present programming challenges related to drone control and autonomous flight - Encourage students to work in teams to solve the challenges using Python - Provide guidance and support as students tackle the challenges - Allow time for students to present their solutions and discuss their approaches

Lesson 8: Drone Safety and Ethical Considerations - Discuss the importance of drone safety and responsible drone usage - Address ethical considerations related to drone technology - Engage students in a discussion about the potential benefits and risks of drones - Encourage students to think critically about the impact of drones on society

Lesson 9: Drone Showcase and Reflection - Provide time for students to showcase their programming projects and missions - Allow students to reflect on their learning experiences throughout the unit - Facilitate a class discussion on the challenges faced and lessons learned - Encourage students to share their future aspirations in drone programming or related fields

Lesson 10: Assessment and Wrap-up - Administer a unit assessment to evaluate students’ understanding of drone programming concepts and skills - Provide feedback and grades to students based on their performance - Review key concepts and skills covered in the unit - Allow time for students to ask questions and clarify any remaining doubts

Note: This unit plan assumes that each lesson is approximately 1 hour long. The duration and content of each lesson can be adjusted based on the specific needs and pace of the students.
