Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 125

A small group of students were trained on the steps of Sphero; following a drawing, then block coding, and advancing to Java Script. Those students are then training other student groups which will eventually include students in our after school club. Ipads are necessary for students to operate and code the Sphero.

 

Students who thought understanding coding such as Java Script are seeing that they can develop skill, and can do it in a way where they see immediate results and is fun.

 

Students are currently engaged in the begninng stages and it is expected approx. 125 students will be impacted when finsihed.

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

To introduce students to the worlds of coding, robotics and apps.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will utilize iPads to code six Sphero SPRK robots (which the classroom currently has) to maneuver through obstacle courses and complete various tasks. These will be used in conjunction with lessons in basic coding and robotics.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will engage in hands-on, interactive activities which will provide a basic education in coding and robotics while fueling their interest in future STEM education and careers.  

 

Describe the Students
