Mr. Eaves from Englewood CO is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Spheros Are Rolling Into the Classroom!

My students need five Sphero Minis so they can continue to develop their understanding of how to code a robot.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I work with a diverse group of students in Englewood, Colorado. These students are new to the STEM/STEAM lab and are developing their 21st century skills to get a competitive edge for the workforce of the future.

These students have been wowed by the various projects that are available to them within the lab that I run and are definitely in need of more materials and tools.

The lab is new and has very limited resources.

My students have started to come up with their own ideas for projects they want to work on with their Ozobots such as competitive race tracks and other courses for their bots to navigate through.

Thank you!

My Project

Students are developing their understanding of code and how code affects all technology in one way or another. With Sphero Minis, students will be able to code their bot to go through obstacle courses and race on a racetrack. This is a great opportunity for student engagement and developing curiosity of the world of STEM/STEAM.

Spheros are a highly engaging robot that can be used to help develop students' curiosity and understanding of sequencing and coding.

Students will be able to explain how code works to control a robot, electronics, and even software with this introduction of robotics control with block coding.
