UPDATE: This was fully funded! Students are now having a great time learning new skills in coding.
Thank you to everyone who contributed!
Mrs. Danielli and the Technology Committee want to grow students’ skills in robotics and coding. They have researched many ways to do this, and found that the best and most fun will be to use Spheros.
What is a Sphero?
A sphero is an educational robot toy designed to teach robotics and coding.
Students’ imaginations are challenged in math, language, communication and technology.
Sphero is a white orb wrapped in waterproof polycarbonate plastic, capable of rolling around, and controlled by a smartphone or tablet.
Sphero will be used to bridge the gap between coding with blocks (ie. Scratch) and the ability to write code manually using Oval (a C-based programming language).
Because this resource will be shared by many classes, it will benefit ALL students at Lynn Valley School.
Mrs. Danielli has set up an online fundraising page – please help her and the Committee buy eight Spheros!
