Explore and develop knowledge of visual coding and robotics as they navigate through a dinosaur park.

Earth Ed comes to you with a class set of Sphero robots and iPads for 60 minutes of engaging discovery-based learning. This program is available at three levels – please specify on the booking form what level program you would like to book.

Beginner – Jurassic park tour

Monitor the fences in our own Jurassic park to gain entry into one of the coolest jobs around, a Jurassic park tour guide!

Inspired by Jurassic World, students will work as control room operators to move their sphero passengers to safety hubs throughout the park. This program is suitable for beginners in sphero coding. 

Featured coding blocks: movement, lights and sound

Intermediate – Jurassic world security team

Guarding the raptor pens!

Students are introduced to visual block coding and are challenged to show their skills in monitoring the raptor pens by creating a program for spheros to patrol the pen boundaries. Students develop their coding skills by working with loops. 

Featured coding blocks: movement, loops

Advanced – escape of the raptors

Release the raptors!

This program allows students to show their advanced coding skills. Students use sophisticated code to ensure that the raptor pens are ‘escape proof’… or are they attempting something much more sinister? 

Featured coding blocks: movement, loops, events, heading, operators
