EHS Students Program Device for Practicing Spanish

Sphero's #ThursdayLearnDay this week featured our students and gave a shout-out to Erie High School!
 
Students spent April interviewing a teacher-client, designing, testing, and reiterating a standards-based lesson plan that meaningfully incorporated Sphero robotics (think BB-8 from Star Wars).  
On May 1st our student teams pitched their ideas to Sphero engineers in Boulder to try to win a "featured spot" on their LightningLab educational website. Zach Glaze, Anthony Arnopoulos, Josh Condon and Garrett Wilson won the challenge with a remixed version of color grab used to review Spanish vocabulary designed for Mr. Aguirre.
 
The students involved in this project wanted to offer special thanks to Erin Roe, Steph Schroeder for helping to design and coordinate this design challenge, and Steven Aguirre, Genadine Toves, Renita Orellana, Ted Goodwin, Brandon Bird for all their patience and constructive criticism to student designers.  Sphero donated twelve of the SPRK+ robots to EHS to do the project, and then donated another four robots to the winning group members! This is a value over $2200 and we are very grateful for their donation!!
 
Below is a story our Erie Tiger Network students produced about the project.
