Computer Science Principles Class at OHS

October 29, 2018

The O’Neill High School Computer Science Principles Class, taught by Mike Peterson, was the recipient of a $2,499 grant from CodeFWD by Facebook. Sphero Edu is partnering with CodeFWD by Facebook, a free program for teachers and other adults working with 4th through 12th graders in the U.S. to inspire interest in the field of computer programming.


Sphero Edu and CodeFWD are offering a free Sphero BOLT Power Pack (a classroom set of 15 BOLT app-enabled robots valued at $2499) for a select number of accepted applicants through the CodeFWD program, Mike Peterson and his Computer Science Principles class was the recipient of one of these Power Packs.


Together, Sphero Edu and CodeFWD are working to expand participation of underrepresented minority students in programming, including Black, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and female communities. By partnering with Sphero Edu, CodeFWD can help expand access and participation so that the next generation of tech innovators better reflects and incorporates diversity.


“This is an awesome opportunity for our students to get some hands-on experience with computer programming. By utilizing the Sphero robots, my classes will gain valuable experience in coding. We are very thankful for this opportunity.”
