MONROE - Recently some students at the Monroe Middle School have been enjoying the Sphero robotic orbs in their Game Design and Web 2.0 class. Monroe Middle School was able to purchase this technology thanks to the generous grant given to Rae Wellnitz, Business and Information Technology Teacher, by the Excellence in Education Fund in Monroe. The Sphero balls are different from the "robots" you might expect.
