By: Aurora Triplett, Cecile Roberts, and Thomas Hardy Cooke


The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, MSMS, Summer Enrichment Camp is offering a class called No-Experience-Needed Coding. This class integrates technology into a classroom atmosphere, and also teaches rising 9th and 10th graders to work with a partner while learning life skills.

“They’re learning to program a Sphero, a sphere shaped robot, to go wherever they want…” said Michael Sandifer, a counselor at the MSMS Summer Enrichment Camp.

Ten campers are in the class at a time with one robot per pair.

“Everyone seems to love the class,” Sandifer stated, “They come with a smile and leave with a smile.”
