Drag, Aim, Sphero!


On 14 April Saturday, 20 of our students and their Dads participated in our “Drag, Aim, Sphero!” father-child bonding event. They learnt basic block programming skills to programme a spherical robot, called “Sphero”. This FamilyMatters@School event was jointly organized by our Parent Support Group (PSG) Liaison Officer, Ms Lily Goh and our school’s FamilyMatters@School Coordinator, Miss Mak.

As part of the school’s “FAMILY Matters@School for Fathers” programme, we first got an experienced speaker to share important tips with the fathers on how they can be more involved in their child’s life, to take on the role as a good influencer.

Next, we specially arranged with one of our student’s father (with his colleagues as part of their company’s CSR effort) to conduct the programming activity. Our 20 students and their fathers had an amazing time! This “Drag, Aim, Sphero!” activity certainly did mobilize our students’ fathers to bond with them over robotics and a friendly competition. They learnt how to programme the Sphero to complete a simple course.  Let the pictures below do the talking!
