Student Experiments with Robotics with Sphere-o

Student Experiments with Robotics with Sphere-o
Posted on 05/09/2017
Ethan Justice, a fifth grader at Berlin Intermediate School has been experimenting with a new robot friend, “Sphere-o”. Sphere-o is a small sphere shaped robot that is controlled through a programming app where you can play games and take Sphere-o on different missions and adventures.

The more games played and points racked up with Sphere-o unlocks many new power-ups including different speeds, lights and sounds. Sphere-o was purchased by Mrs. Nancy Stearns and introduced to students in her After School Academy STEM club but most robots at BIS are purchased with book fair donation money.

The purpose of experimenting with robots at BIS is to allow students to learn about coding and can help reinforce math skills.
