Sphero Robotics Funlab Inspire curiosity, creativity, and invention through connected play and coding using the Sphero SPRK+ connected robot. Campers will gain some programming skills while they play with the Bluetooth controlled, interactive robots. They will make them roll, bounce, and jump through obstacle courses, race around a track, and create artistic images with their robotic movements. Campers will be tested to think creatively and stretch their mathematical and problem-solving skills as they work to solve daily challenges. Campers need to bring a Bluetooth enabled Apple or Android device preloaded with the SpheroEdu app fully charged every day. The device can be stored in the classroom during the day.
