Sphero Coding: A group of students design a maze and challenge another group of students to finish their maze using the Sphero Robot. The group writes a code that enables the robot to traverse the maze autonomously .

Subject: Literacy, Math, Technology , Art

Sphero Soccer ( Version 1)

Game Design: Create a game with 4-8 players portable game. Design game rules, and game pieces.

Using a scrap piece of cardboard, students designed, painted their very own soccer table. The goals were designed using Tinkercad and 3d printed using Makerbot printer. The Spheros are controlled by teams of 3 using an ipads. \

The Race Car - Forces and Motion

Students were tasked in the creation of their very race Car which they would use to measure distance, and speed. They would also learn about variables when creating an experiment and what can determine different outcomes.

Subject : Science, Math

Project Prove Unity Wrong - Also known as VR Dungeon

Students were challenged in learning Unity Design Software and create a fully functioning Virtual Reality Video game. The game would be classified as a Dungeon Crawler and would require students to solve puzzles and avoid enemies to reach the end of the maze.

Students designed a Bloxels Arcade cabinet to present their Bloxels game creation.

The bloxels game are created on an IPAD and published online to a private server where anyone play. The cabinet served as a way to present their games in a informal and interactive way.

The Arcade Cabinet also served as a way to present the history of gaming and how games were presented in the past.
