Exciting Programmable Mini Sphero Robots

My Students

The students at my school are super special in many ways. This year we have had a 15% increase in students attending our school. We average 750 students. 51% of our student body receives free or reduced lunch.

Our school is very welcoming with the differences we share with each other.

Part of being welcoming is having our unique STEM classroom that all of the students visit each week. We have been working on the 21st-century skills where students really learn to collaborate, be creative, and have a positive growth mindset.

All classrooms are doing more STEM activities in their classroom, but students also go to STEM each week. In STEM class, I am able to work on mini-challenges that push their thinking and working together using the Engineering Design Process.

My Project

We do different kinds of programming in STEM. Currently I use a hands-on programmable robot mouse with 1st and 2nd graders. 4th and 5th graders use a buildable and programmable Lego Mindstorm robot.

Students love these different kinds of programming especially the hands-on holding the robots and being in control.

Adding mini Sphero robots would help 3rd graders with a hands-on robot on their own to learn from. Sphero has their own kind of coding that would be excellent to challenge them with.

Having these available will be fun and exciting! Giving students new challenging activities to work on is important!
