My Students

My elementary school is made up of approximately 600 students in grades K-6. We are part of the Silver Lake Regional School District. These students visit the library once a week and are always eager to learn when they walk through the doors. Using technology is something that the students at my school love to do and I can't wait to add more tools for them to use.

My Project

Coding has become not only an important but popular part of education at the elementary school level. With Sphero Robot Balls, students will have the opportunity to control their own robots using the app on a Kindle Fire. These robots will show students the basics of coding and they will see hands-on the different ways that you can make something move with technology.

Adding Sphero Robot Balls to the library will enhance the students' education and STEAM projects immensely.

Students are excited every week when they come into the library to see what new and exciting lesson we will do and these robots will be top on their list!
