About us

Graeme High School is a secondary school in Falkirk. The school roll contains over 1,000 students. In 2012, the school was selected as the Falkirk base for the Scottish Football Association's Performance schools, a system devised to support the development of the best young talented footballers across the country, but it also has a thriving Computing Department.

What do we want?

We would like to buy 10 Sphero robots to teach our students the basics of computer programming while they are having fun.

Who is this for?

This is for all the S1 students.

Why do we want it?

We aim to teach computational thinking skills to our youngest while they are having fun. They won't even realise they are learning with these robots.


10 x Sphero robots @ £100 each

Total = £1,000


If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would buy 10 more Sphero robots so each student gets a robot.
