My Students

My students are all STEM students. Hands on activities motivate them more than working from a book. Working with robots and computers makes them enjoy class. We always work together as a team and smile all day.

These students want the opportunity to excel in the engineering field.

Engineering and coding are past times for them. Robotics is a way for the engineers and coders to work together. Technology will be the future and they will definitely be leading the way.

My Project

These Sphero Mini's will allow my students to begin programming robotics in a fun way. They will be able to physically see what their code does. We will have a competition at the end of the lesson to see who can code the Sphero Mini to roll through a maze and code them to design helmets to test g-force.

It will be exciting for them to watch their code being executed.

We will relate the projects to real world careers and discuss how coding makes it all possible. These Sphero Mini's will be the gateway to coding for many of my students.
