My Students

I have a fantastic class of 26 second graders. Our school has a large population of free and reduced price lunch students. Unfortunately, we have limited access to hands-on technology tools.

My students need these Spheros to introduce them to coding in an engaging, fun, and interactive way!

More than half of these students are living at or below the poverty level and yet they have so much passion to learn. I feel that giving my students time to collaborate and problem-solve with their classmates will be immensely rewarding. The joy students feel when sharing their success is priceless!

My Project

Coding is a vital language of the future. My students need to learn this important skill to compete in today's world. Children are so interested about how things work. They love to complete coding puzzles on various websites in our classroom. These Spheros will help them understand the purpose of coding and what it is used for. The Spheros will help them learn how to code a robot through a maze. It will help them problem solve with their classmates.

Many of the new jobs that are being created will have coding as a prerequisite.

Teaching this skill to children at a young age will help them get a head start on their future. I have seen a change in children over the years. They are so in-tune with so many new and exciting technological advances. I want to give them the best possible chances to be successful! I feel these Spheros will be a step in making this possible!
