The goal of this project is to expand student's knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) principles using hands-on, engaging activities with an amazing device called the Sphero. The Sphero is an app-enabled robotic ball. When students download Sphero apps on iPads, iPods, Smartphones or tablets, they have the power to write computer programs to control the Sphero's speed, direction, lights, sound, motions, and many other actions, using block or text coding. The learning applications are endless! Funds from this project will be used to purchase a Sphero, a protective cover for the Sphero, an iPad mini 4, and a case for this iPad. Play is a powerful tool, and by fusing technology with robotics, it will be inspiring tomorrow's inventors and innovators. I plan to utilize the free, online curriculum which accompanies the Sphero called the "Spark Lightning Lab," to enhance the learning process. The SPRK lessons give students a fun crash course in programming while sharpening their skills in math, computer science and engineering.
