Programming Robots with Sphero

Today Open World Learning showcased the talents of Edgewater Elementary School students who are taking part in their six week computer coding summer program. Student teams took part in a coding competition using robotic balls from Boulder tech company Sphero. Students used iPad apps designed to work with the Sphero ball to navigate through a maze.

Winners of the competition received their own Sphero ball.

Below is one of the teams attempting to navigate the maze.
