Sphero Computer Science Foundations Course 2
Computer Science Foundations (CSF) is a supplemental, standards-aligned curriculum designed to be taught in the classroom alongside our robots. CSF teaches STEAM principles through computer science over this 24-lesson course. Each cross-curricular lesson builds on the previous one and allows teachers and students to grow together. By the end of Course 2, students will demonstrate a mastery of block programming by manipulating sensors, loops, conditionals, variables, and functions.

With their robots and Block programming skills, students will learn to communicate clearly with their partners, offer praise and encouragement, and grow their classroom community.
In this series of Block lessons, students will use their Sphero robots to represent the elements of a story, develop dialogue, retell historical events, and even overcome writer’s block.
Bring out your inner gamer through a series of lessons designed to develop your Block programming skills—play Bingo, search for hidden treasure and build your own set of dice.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Manipulate variables (numbers, sound) in the Block Canvas.
- Apply conditionals without guidance that utilize sensors, comparators.
- Develop their own complex programs in Block programming.
Student facing instructions and pre-loaded blocks for every activity.
Teachers can access every lesson in the Sphero Edu app by scanning the QR code or by navigating to the CS Foundations tab under ‘Activities’ in the app. Teachers can then assign individual lessons to each student’s Workbook. Many lessons have pre-loaded blocks so students can start coding right away.
