App-Enabled Robots

Look out – robots are coming to Haynes! A proposal for app-enabled robots was approved with the goal of fostering creativity through discovery, play, and to add to students’ foundation for computer science skills.  The Sphere Mini Education kit includes 16 clear robotic balls with gyroscopes, accelerometers, and LED lights, as well as bumpers, mini traffic cones, bowling pins, construction sets, and activity cards to spark students’ engagement and imaginations as they practice and learn to control the bots with their own commands.  The kit will be accessible to all classes at Haynes.
