DMCC Presentation: SPRKing Student Interest in STEM

I’m excited to be presenting at the 2018 DMCC (Design and Maker Class Colloquium) at Windward School in Los Angeles on May 12.

My session description:

Come explore the Sphero SPRK+ Robot as an interdisciplinary tool for introducing design, coding and data collection into your STEM curriculum. In this hands-on workshop, you will design, build and code a Roman chariot (that’s humanities!) for your Sphero and then analyze the data collect to develop an understanding of science concepts such as kinematics, Newton’s Laws and rotation. You will leave with a collection of coding activities that work across disciplines and across grade levels.

For download, the workshop materials.
