My Students

Imagine a classroom in which students can let their curiosity, imagination, and collaboration skills be their guides for learning and growing. Students arrive at our centralized location for gifted and talented education class. They get to interact with their intellectual peers to delve deeper into content, develop strategic gaming skills, and hone their logical thinking abilities.

Our fantastic teachers provide rigorous, real-world opportunities to prepare students to be empowered learners, responsible citizens, global competitors, and innovative entrepreneurs.

Our school serves students from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade.

My Project

Our gifted and talented education classroom needs three more Sphero Minis - app controlled robot balls. During Selectives (a free choice time during our GATE day), students choosing Coding as their Selective will have the chance to program the robotic balls. Learning how to combine code blocks to create basic shapes is just the start. Programming other movements, sounds, and colored lights adds to the engagement and deepens the learning experience.

The three additional Spheros Minis will enable students to work in a smaller group size giving them more hands-on opportunities for programming.

Students figuring out the basics tasks will transition to building their own obstacle courses.
