Use CARES Act funding to help with distance learning needs and Sphero blended-learning solutions. Our at-home learning solutions are designed for a classroom-of-one and individualized learning so there’s no need to worry about shared materials.
This getting-started guide includes introductory activities, troubleshooting tips, measurements for success, and supplemental resources to make it easy for educators to send home with students and for families to facilitate STEM learning at home.
BOLT's programmable sensors include a compass, light sensor, gyroscope, accelerometer, motor encoders, and infrared communications. Because of these advanced sensors, manually aiming your Sphero is now a thing of the past. BOLT’s built-in compass lets you automatically aim and drive your educational robot, plus you can program BOLT to follow real-world directions on a map. You can also code with the ambient light sensor that can tell if it’s light or dark, allowing for programming conditions based on brightness.
The Sphero Edu app contains 100+ guided STEAM and computer science lessons, activities, and programs, consisting of varying skill level and content areas. Wondering where to start? We’ve curated a selection of getting started activities to walk you and your kid(s) through the basics of programming and creating with BOLT.
BOLT’s 8x8 LED light matrix allows you to program your robot using code to display characters, vector graphics, sensor data, or play games on the matrix itself. Sphero BOLT can also 'talk' to other BOLTs using 360° infrared communication. Become a storyteller using multiple robots and program advanced movements to carry out scenes. You won’t be able to take your eyes off it!
