Day 98 - Sphero Activity Block Gears up for the Winter Olympics! - Mrs. Floyd and Mrs. Tate

This post first appeared on the Marshall Simonds Middle School Blog 

MSMS has been gearing up for the 2018 Winter Olympics during the past two Activity Block offerings.  Mrs. Floyd and Mrs. Tate have designed the Sphero and Ollie Olympics where students code their robot to compete in several individual and team events.  Some simple events like curling only involve one line of code where more complex events such as the slalom course will require many lines of code.  Events include: curling, bowling, slalom skiing, downhill skiing, synchronized Spheros, and swimming.  Here are some pictures and of the events in action!
