Sphero Edu™ App

The Sphero Edu app is your hub to create, contribute, and learn with Sphero robots. Go beyond code by incorporating unique STEAM activities to complete with your bot. Designed for learner progression, Sphero Edu beginners can give robots commands by drawing a path in the app for their robot to follow. Intermediate coders can use drag-and-drop blocks to learn more advanced coding concepts, while more experienced programmers can use JavaScript to command their robot. The Sphero Edu app can be used in school or at home.
