Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 120

Students not normally interested in the intricacies of coding became focused as coding became a fun experience. Students engaged in programming the Sphero balls and, working in teams, engaged in competitive activities. Students reported that they were not even aware of the learning they were engaged in because the activities were fun. 

 

Original Grant Overview
