Sphero and Jimu are more than robots. They are hardy and enthusiastic code-driven companions. These lively robots rock rolls, and move their way through mazes and over obstacles. With a built-in LED matrix as well as speed and directional sensors, the instructor will guide our students through problem-solving while they lay a foundation for real-world robotics. We use Scratch programming and other coding platforms to provide a diverse head start into the world of STEM.
