Cracking Coding

Interested in getting started with coding? Not really sure how code can work with your students? Join Shelagh for these hands-on experiences that you and your students will love. Start off interacting with block coding and soon you'll be dragging and dropping commands like a pro! Next, SPRK your coding experience using Sphero SPRK! What is a Sphero SPRK? Much like BB-8 from Star Wars, SPRK is a small, programmable robot sphere that uses your iPad's Bluetooth capability to drive, draw and race over obstacles. Learning fun for everyone!

What to bring
