For my blog post I did the Hour of Code. I just one at random and the one I clicked I actually enjoyed. It is a Star Wars programming game where you get to program BB-8 and other cool characters. Even
The reason I chose this image is it reminds me of an easter tradition my family has. Every Easter my family wakes up early and goes to church. Afterwards we head home and sit around for about an hour.

Recently the technology class has been working with little robots called Spheros. I’m going to educate you on these robots. Spheros can range in how their shaped. They also have different designs for example you have the mini which is little harder to control or you can have the bolt which is the newest one and has a lot more functions like it has a little Led pad that you can program to say messages or have different designs. You can also program them to do for example obstacle courses by either doing regular block coding or you can draw out a path on your phone you want it to take. Though if you’re not a fan of writing code. That is perfectly okay because Spheros also have a drive mode where you can drive however or wherever you want. Now this makes them sound like toys but in reality they are very educational.If you get one and you can teach yourself along with your students. They teach you basic coding which you can expand on and you can move on to become excellent at coding. If you are a teacher they are an excellent way to get your students excited about learning to code. Take my class for example we knew we going to be coding and we weren’t exactly happy about it but when saw we would be coding the robots we were ecstatic. Now we’re coding and we love it because Spheros made it fun.Teacher may even learn something the Spheros you never know. I recommend getting one for more eager and happy students. To sum this up these are just all around useful robots no matter if your in school or out of school or teacher or student these robots are all around extremely useful and educational robots.
