​Sphero Ball Lesson by Year 6 Student


Hi, my name is Owen and I’m in year six. I had the awesome opportunity to teach my class one afternoon about robots called Sphero balls. They are a lot of fun, you can program them to do pretty much anything. So, our first challenge was to try and knock over all the glue as they represented bowling pins. We used the function called draw on the programming app. Our second challenge the next day was getting the Sphero ball to roll over the top of three books then turn around and come back over them. The function we used for this challenge was called Block. I would like to thank my teacher Mr Treanor for letting me take the afternoon session and encouraging me to teach my class.
