Sphero classes 2.00/3.00

This time we were going to teach them lesson 2 colors, loop raw motor, and sound and then incorporate it into a triangle. For the first group, everything was slow but in the second group, we did it very fast. We also had to teach them lesson 3 which was making a triangle revolving around itself. for group 1 we had to rush it because we did not have much time because it was slow for the lesson 2. but for group 2 we had more time and we didn’t have to rush it. I thought it was easier the second time around because we were more used to the lesson 2/3.

Sphero Classes #1

Today on March 8th we had our first sphero classes we did for 1 hour. 30 minutes for Mrs. Boyer and 30 minutes for Mrs. Cooper. First, we had Mrs. Cooper, In that group, we had William, Bora, and Zach. We were teaching them how to make an equilateral triangle. We finished early so we started playing around. Then Mrs. Boyers class In that class we had Rush, Eliot, and Skyler, but Skyler switched groups so we got Ronald instead. We taught them the same things and we finished early again. Then we were Done with our first sphero class.

Rocketry Presentation

We just finished our rocketry unit in school we launched built graphed and reflected on our rocket at the end we had to present a slideshow that is the end of the whole unit.

On December 5th we did our Rocketry Presentations. At first I was nervous, then I watched all of the groups go and suddenly my tension grew smaller, I became less nervous but I was still shaking. Then it was our turn, Then my tension grew again. When we started it felt completely normal and I was not worrying one bit and it all went very smoothly before I knew it we were done.

Using sphero SPRK+

Using sphero SPRK+ it was very difficult but after we got the hang of it it all made

First what everyone did was go onto drive mode, (which is using a joystick to drive it). That is what we thought that we should do but we were wrong. Then we figured out that we should go onto the coding mode (which is a mode that you can code the sphero ). I took a while to get the hang off it. I thought It was like the original sphero but I was wasn’t righ… actually it is coding. you can put roll at speed 150 for 2.5 seconds it will move for 2.5 second at the speed of 150. I really liked using sphero SPRK+ because I have experience coding and it was very fun.Image result for sphero sprk
