Coding Spheros for K-5

Coding Spheros for K-5


StemSpheros are ball-shaped robots that can be coded from a fundamental to a highly advanced coding level. Lessons have been created to integrate the Spheros into the curriculum in all core areas for kindergarten through 5th grade. Spheros are coded using one of two software programs, both of which are available for free download.

PCPS currently has four class sets of Spheros, which the three elementary schools share. Unfortunately, the downloads are no longer available on Chromebooks, the devices used in PCPS classes. Kindle Fires can be used to code the Spheros and are easily handled by students of all ages.

PCPS currently has two class sets of the Kindle Fires but needs two more sets so that all of the Sphero sets can be used in the classes.
