As a Coding/Art/STEAM activity, district coding teacher Jennifer Horton introduced the students in Mrs. Derby's second grade class to Sphero, a programmable robot ball designed to inspire creativity and curiosity through coding and play.
As a fun introduction to Sphero, they placed hula hoops on the classroom floor as a boundary. Inside each hula hoop, they laid out construction paper and an assortment of colored paints. Each student was given the opportunity to program Sphero to roll through the paint colors and onto the construction paper.
As a result of their ability to code, each student was able to create their own piece of very colorful and creative artwork.
