PAGE ACSE Exploring Force and Energy of Moving Objects with Sphero

(View Complete Item Description)

Students will use Spheros to explore the force and energy of moving objects.  This lesson is appropriate for students and teachers with little to no experience with coding. Students will evaluate a single line of programming that directs the Sphero to move and test to see if they correctly anticipated the results.  Students will bowl down "pins" by programming the Sphero. Students will experiment with changing variables and discuss how that changes the motion.
