The Pope John Environmental Science class recently completed a macrolab using Sphero Robots. They used their Spheros to create a coding program to complete different tasks. The students then calculated their time, speed, and distance. Spheros are app-enabled robotic balls. The class will be using them throughout the year to work on coding challenges and physics related labs. The equipment was purchased through a grant from Cargill Inc. and matching donations received from supporters at the school’s annual “Evening with Friends” fundraising event.
