Beginning to Code

student working on project

What looks like a game played with robots is really a lesson in coding.  Students in Mrs. Kitchen’s class at Weaver are learning to code using Spheros devices.  She says learning coding skills at an early age gives students insight into potential areas of future study.  The immediate lesson learned is how to think creatively, work independently and collaboratively, apply math, solve problems, fix errors, and have fun in the project

For this project, the students programmed their Sphero device to draw a letter, and their team created words.  The long term lessons open up a world of technology in a fun and creative opportunity.  Being Ready for Tomorrow means students need to embrace technology changes and understand what goes into these changes.
