Mini Sphero for the Win!

Help me give my students Sphero Mini Robot Balls for new experiences. My older classes have mastered my current robots, and these will do so much more.

My Students

Our kids are great! We have so many from different backgrounds that all need exposure to technology. Our students are the most kind hearted and down to earth. They go above and beyond to help each other.

I have the pleasure of working with 700 second grade through fifth grade students.

My Project

Our students are needing a new challenge. We use these as an introduction to coding. These new robots will allow us to use the block coding we are familiar with and they will also allow them to learn javascript. Our students are fun loving and kind hearted and deserve a new opportunity. They have mastered the block coding and need a new challenge. We have been using Dash and Dot robots now for 3 years. We use them to reinforce skills as well as compete in international competitions.
