Description

Overview:
 Students are tasked with moving a 20 gram (or other low denomination) weight a distance of one meter using a “Sphero*” remote controlled robot.  Students use available materials to design and build a structure that will allow the sphero to push or pull the weight, while allowing for factors such as friction, direction, and gravity.   *Note: Although students can issue specific commands in the Sphero software, this activity only requires that they be able to “drive” the Sphero, thus providing the force to move the weight.

If students were given a choice for the devices, hardware & software being used, this lesson would align with K2.CS.01, K2.CS.02, K2.CS.03, 35.CS.01 & 35.CS.02.
