4th graders teach you how to program a robot 

This video, made during the Hour of Code for Computer Science Week by Django and Miles, shows the process of using code to program a robot called a Sphero to perform a task they dreamed up.

In the video you will see them connect an iPad to the robot, figure out what code they need, program, try, fail, analyze, recode, and succeed!

Kids & teachers: now that you know what a Sphero does, what else can we do with it?  Take your ideas to Ms. Valentino!
