Big Idea: How can technology be used to help people?

We are going to work through three different sections in our course, using three different types of technology.  The first section is going to be learning to code a microcomputer called a Micro:bit.  You will build a pet for your classmate and work through the design process to build the best pet possible for them.  Finally, you will participate in a Sphero Challenge, where you will gain points by having your group's Sphero complete a variety of different challenges.


Code.org Lessons

We will be working through the Express Course in Computer Science this term.  These lessons can be done in class, when you have completed your other work, or outside of class at home.  You can earn extra credit by completing the lessons in this course.  Click here to try it out.  You will need a code card from Mr. Heinrichs to join the class.


Sphero Challenge

The last two weeks of our term will be spent on a series of challenges involving Sphero Robots.  Each class will be split into teams of 4.  Each team will do their best to get the most points, the top teams will compete for the ultimate Sphero Challenge Trophy.
