Latest from Year 1
There was great excitement last week as the Year 1 students were introduced to Spheros. Spheros are robotic balls that can be controlled and programmed by iPads. The initial challenge for the students was to learn to control their robots. They were asked to race to the 3 dimensional shape that was called out by the teacher and be the first there. This week the students have created battle bots which are vehicles that the spheros can travel in. These battle bots have a balloon attached to each of them as well as a straw holding a drawing pin. The challenge was to pop each other’s balloon. The students then evaluated and reflected on their designs and made changes to improve their battle bots performance.
