A $99 child-friendly drone was developed by a Chinese developer Ryze Tech in collaboration with DJI that was a splendid blend of DJI’s state-of-the-art flight technology and an Intel processor to conjure an affordable camera drone that can be used to inculcate the fundamentals of programming in kids. There are drone books written about it. Scratch is being utilized by the Tello drone as its coding platform which is essentially a coding language targeted at kids. The drone can be programmed to fly in certain directions based on the code.

There are specifically written drone books for kids such as the Flybrix Lego drone kit that comes bundled together with a preprogrammed board, propellers, and motors. It is geared to teaching its users tons of skills ranging from the basics of flight to computer science to the core concepts of Electrical Engineering.
