Kids Programming and Robotics combined with Challenges, Competition and Team Work

Learning to code is a daunting prospect and it’s hard to know where to start when approaching teaching kids. However, the development of Sphero has removed some of the road blocks and by engaging kids in a fun but easily understandable way they have helped cut through to introduce coding basics to childten.

Spheros are plastic spherical robots that are capable of rolling around, changing colors, running programs, and being controlled by a smartphone or tablet. They are popular amongst kids and teachers and now we’ve come up with a sports program that makes for an exciting incursion or birthday party.
