Great resource for creating a STEM challenge kit for your classroom! This card set walks students through creating a whole in mini golf (following certain criteria and constraints) that they will program a sphero to complete. This card set utillizes the Lightning Lab app for sphero. Students will also need butcher paper and construction paper or markers. There is also an additional "challenge" card for any groups that may finish early. There is also a card that shows Iowa Core NGSS standards alignment.
Alignment to Iowa Core/ NGSS Standards:
3–5–ETS1–3: Plan and carry out fair tests
in which variables are controlled and
failure points are considered to identify
aspects of a model or prototype that can
3–5–ETS1–1: Define a simple design
problem reflecting a need or a want that
includes specified criteria for success and
constraints on materials, time, or cost.
