Sphero Edu Review

What is Sphero

Sphero is a spherical electronic device with an application that can be installed on a tablet or a smartphone. Sphero Play is designed to use at home for entertainment and learning. Sphero Edu is designed for teaching STEM through coding, science, music, and the arts. Kids will learn about robotic, coding, how Sphero operates, and explore different components.

On top of these rich learning opportunities, Sphero Edu provides challenging activities and competitions to complete. Students are not limited to just programming the movement of sphero. Sphero has LED lights and sounds that can also be programmed, and the students love to be creative by adding their first letters, names, or other shapes. 

Kids can control a host of Sphero robots with coding app Sphero Edu, including mini versions of Star Wars droids like BB-8 and R2-D2. Sphero robots also include balls and capsules that autonomously roll. They are impressively durable, waterproof, and agile.

With options for all levels of coding ability, kids can draw paths, use drag-and-drop code blocks, or write code text. Users can also turn their device sideways for a simple code-free remote control, which may discourage some kids from learning to code all together. Sphero is the more affordable of the app-controlled robots on this list.

How much does it costs?

The Sphero Mini Robot’s price is $50 and the Sphero kits usually range between $150-200 dollars. Sphero Academy has self-guided trainings for educators.  The Sphero apps provides instructional videos with steps to follow and a variety of exercises to explore depending on their interests. For instance, they could dive into the animation or the technology field. Changing Sphero’s LED lights when vibrating is an example of a challenging activity.
