We love calling this grant to Cody Dotson and Randy Hardin our "Jimmy Don" grant! If you're a fan of Fixer Upper, you'll understand.
Students in this class gain valuable experience using Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) to design, machine, and laser engrave their projects using the CNC Shark HD 4 Machine and laser engraving module provided from an Education Foundation grant.
Students had the opportunity to draw paths that represent code for their Sphero Mini to follow, and older students will soon begin coding the Spheros in the library using a block-based drag and drop interface.
Next they'll collaborate with Fine Arts! Crockett's "Coding from the ART" grant funded by the Weatherford ISD Education Foundation, will use the Sphero Minis to combine Art and Technology, allowing students to see the creative side of Computer Science while making learning fun! Students will paint with the Spheros, code them to dance to the beat of a song, and even work together to create an artistic light show.
