2018 HEF Grant | Utilizing Sphero

Craig Van Ham, 6th & 7th Grade Math Teacher
Baldwin Street Middle School

Last year, a HEF grant allowed students in Mr. Van Ham’s math classes to interact with Sphero, an electronic programmable moving sphere. Students learned how to control the speed, direction, sound, and LED lights through a series of lessons. Once they mastered the basics, they learned how to program using blocks and text code. The Sphero projects helped students learn how to create code, problem solve, think in logical sequences, and work cooperatively.
