Digital Technologies – Term 4 2019

This term, the middle level students have had a lot of fun learning how to use drag-and-drop block code with our Sphero robots. Two activities that have been particular highlights have been Sphero Darts and the Sphero Long Jump.

As well as programming the robots, students have been required to record data from these activities in Google Sheets. This has led to conversations about how we can compare data and what variables would affect the data (such as the speed of the robot, the slope of a ramp, the distance of a run-up etc).
