Today we had fun problem solving using Sphero. The students had to work in small groups to create small courses using the following rules;
- At least one angle.
- No jumps.
- No more than 2 angles.
- Maximum of 2m of measuring tape.
- Work cooperatively and ensure everyone is included.
The students then had to work together to write code in ‘Lightning Lab‘ app to move the robots along the courses. The task was a lot harder than it looked, it involved a huge amount of trial and error. I was very impressed with the teamwork and resilience shown by everyone.
One group was successful at mastering 3 of the courses!
