Learning is Evolving. Get on the Ball.

Designed to inspire curiosity, creativity, and invention through connected play and coding, SPRK+ is far more than just a robot.

Equipped with Bluetooth Smart and a scratch-resistant, durable shell, SPRK+ takes hands-on learning up a notch. Programmable sensors like motor encoders, LED lights, accelerometer, and a gyroscope allow for countless experiences and coding conditions. SPRK+ will foster a love of robotics, coding, and STEM principles – all through play.

Through the Sphero Edu app, beginners can give SPRK+ commands by drawing a path for their robot to follow. Intermediate coders can use Scratch blocks to learn more advanced logic, while pros can use text programming and write their own JavaScript. Then, coders can share their creations with the Sphero community to inspire and be inspired.
