Sphero is like nothing your students have seen before. It’s the first “robotic ball” device that you control with a tilt, touch, or swing from your smartphone or tablet. Sphero is an interactive and engaging robot that brings programming off the computer and into real life. With over ten different programming environments, and apps like MacroLab, students as young as eight can learn how to program.
In this workshop students will participate in several challenges that develop team work, co-operation and communication skills. Students will be divided into teams of 4 and each team will be provided with challenges that require students to control or program the Sphero.
