The Sphero SPRK is physically and mechanically identical to the Sphero 2.0 but uses a transparent plastic enclosure allowing you to see the intricate mass of components inside. The SPRK app experience lets you give your robot the orders with visual blocks representing code - a C-based language called OVAL. Sphero is a engaging tool for all ages that can help your students learn and practice a range of different skills and disciplines.
Pair students up to practice and learn about communication and team building - a controller (distracted, blindfolded or wearing earmuffs) and a spotter (relaying directions through speech, signing, or in a foreign language).
