Sphero Robots turn into Artbots

This year Woodsdale Elementary received a STEAM Power WV grant to purchase Sphero robots and iPads to control them.  Our fifth graders had a wonderful time learning to write computer code to control the motion of these ball shaped robots.  The library is pretty lively place with 12 remote control balls zipping around.  After they had them a little more under control, the kids used the robots to create painting.  They rolled the robots in paint and then ran the program they had created to make an original piece of art.  Thank you to everyone who helped and made this project possible. Below you can see some of the artwork we created.
