Fun With Sphero

As a School for Advanced Studies, Dorris Place commits to strengthen services for students identified as gifted, highly gifted, and students who demonstrate superior academic achievement.


During the 2017-2018 school year, gifted and highly gifted students participated in after school programming on Tuesday which incorporated coding and Spheros. Spheros are spherical robots that are controlled by a smartphone or tablet.


Students “code,” or program the sphero to do different functions. These classes incorporate hands-on learning and collaboration.
