My students need SPHEROs to enhance their learning and coding abilities!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I've been working at the same Title I school in Central Florida for the past seven years. My school provides free breakfast and lunch, every day, to 100% of its students. Our students come from many diverse backgrounds. Many are from other countries and are learning the English language while others have been in Florida their whole lives. I embrace the diversity that I encounter everyday and I believe it makes me a more well rounded educator.
My students provide enthusiasm in their learning and persevere through the things they find difficult.
They are able to do this because they know they are encouraged and feel safe when making mistakes.
My students work collaboratively and have engaging discussions built upon their own leveled questions. This allows them to be accountable for their learning and accountable for listening to their peers.
We need two Spheros to enhance their learning and coding abilities! Coding is the future! Some students have no exposure to coding and Sphero is a perfect opportunity to get them engaged in learning how to code. "Spheros are physical robotic toys, digital apps, and entertainment experiences to unlock the true potential of play and inspire tomorrow's leaders."
Coding allows students to think, process and communicate.
It promotes teamwork and problem solving skills. These are basic skills that can be difficult to learn but are necessary for growth. They will be used for discovering avenues to solve real world math and science problems. The goal is become a pro with code!
