    One of ANSEP's components, which is focused on coding, allowed kids to learn about 3D modeling through the use of drones. It was a unique experience that showed the students how drones function. However, the experience was more focused on developing student's skills and teaching them about 3D modeling, as well as improving their skills in logical reasoning. ANSEP understands the role that drones and 3D modeling have taken in today's workforce, and with that in mind, wanted to allow the students the opportunity to learn through hands-on experience that was part work and mostly fun.
