Spheros in Action

Spheros in Action

Last week, pupils at Saint Mary’s Primary School experienced controlling the spheros from an iPad. They used a variety of apps to programme the robotic device and used some of the kit to create obstacles. If you are interested in using these in your own class, please contact the Learning Technology Team for more information.

Meet sphero, the original app enabled robotic ball.

Using this device you can make, code, create and share.

We currently have 4 sphero’s in our Loanbank available for schools to use. Please contact Learning Technology Team for further information.

The sphero education website also provides lots of information: http://edu.sphero.com/
