Rocky Point Middle School students in Mrs. Dawn Perri’s science class have been busy understanding force and motion. They have been learning about how things move and directions in which they go. Through the guidance of Mrs. Kerri Herbst, the school’s Educational Technology Coach, students utilized Sphero Robots and a map of Rocky Point to move around town. They used the robots to model push and pull forces, compass rose directions and speed of inclines. It also gave the students an opportunity to learn how to get to popular local destinations such as McDonald’s, Kohl’s and Starbucks within the town of Rocky Point.
