SPRK+ and Sphero Edu provide a toolset that is unbounded in its potential. It’s not our role to limit young minds and place them on an established path, but to knock down the barriers and let them forge their own. We believe that sometimes the best lessons are the ones we teach ourselves. While coding and 21st-century skills are necessary, our program also goes beyond code by incorporating robotics and technology with collaborative STEAM activities, nurturing students’ imaginations in ways no other education program can.

Our cross-platform Sphero Edu app is approachable for all skill levels, enabling us to reach as many minds as possible and provide ongoing challenges. Designed for learner progression, beginners can give robots commands by drawing a path in the app for their robot to follow.

Intermediate coders can use code blocks to learn more advanced logic, while pros can use text programming and write their own JavaScript. Accessible from almost any platform, you can program using your smart device and the Sphero Edu app.
