Last week at the HECC conference, we were fortunate to get a SPHERO. Sphero is a robot ball that can be easily seen as a mere toy from the surface, but once you begin to understand how the Sphero functions and see some of its uses and applications, it quickly becomes evident that it is much more than a toy.
Sphero allows students from Kindergarten through college to dive more deeply into the world of math, science, and computer programming. With the Sphero, students gain hands-on experience with a robot that can complete many taks that the student programs it to do. Future posts will highlight some of the various apps that already exist for Sphero, but in the meantime, let’s take a moment to meet this awesome device!
