Computing at Booth Wood

Our Computing Equipment

 

As computers and computer systems are an ever changing aspect to society we aim to provide our pupils with new and unique ways to explore the Computing curriculum, whilst developing outstanding skills and knowledge to operate new and existing technology.

Sphero's

We have a set of Sphero Robots within school that show the pupils a new way to programming and coding. Sphero's robots are able to be commanded through the use of drawing, drive commands, block-based coding and even JavaScript text. Sphero's are focused on the progression of our pupils as they are fully accessible to all through the 'Sphero Edu' application. As well as this, we are part of the Sphero Community in which we are able to share our creations, inspire others and also challenge ourselves to complete tasks that have been created from other Teachers in the community. Sphero robots are a great way to inspire brilliant young minds by bringing a new aspect to programming.

 

Our Sphero's are used throughout various subjects, such as Art and Science. We are able to programme the Sphero's to roll through paint and create a piece of art work! As well as this, the Sphero's are fully functional in water, which brings a new way of learning Science as they not only float, but also move in water too!
