The official app for learning to code with Sphero robots.

Sphero Edu is your hub to create, contribute, and learn with Sphero robots. Go beyond code by incorporating unique STEAM activities to complete with your bot.

Designed for learner progression, Sphero Edu beginners can give robots commands by drawing a path in the app 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.

Sphero Edu is built for makers, learners, educators, and parents. Join the growing community and share your creations to inspire and be inspired. The interactive platform allows you to keep track of your class or group from one easy place. Anyone can save their progress, jump from device to device, and continue the discovery from anywhere. Preparing for the future has never been so fun.


PROGRAMS: Program your bots in 3 ways with Draw, Block, and Text modes. Start with the basics and grow.

SENSOR DATA: See location, accelerometer, gyroscope, velocity, and distance sensor data through visual graphs.

ACTIVITIES: Program a painting. Navigate a maze. Mimic the solar system. The only limit is your imagination.

TAKE A DRIVE: Need a brain break? Set LED colors on your robot and zoom around in Drive mode.

ASSIGNMENTS: Are you a teacher? Monitor progress by creating and assigning activities to students.

INTEGRATIONS: Simplify classroom use by signing in and syncing classrooms with Google and Clever accounts.

COMMUNITY: Create an account, share your programs, and learn together with other creative coders.

Great Introduction

We have used this as an introduction to programming a robot for year 4 students and it has been very simple to set-up and use on the latest machines

Updates no longer working

Great app that we have been using successfully in schools.
However, the last 2 updates (4.2.0 and 4.2.2) no longer let the Sphero2s connect with the iPad2s we have (iOS 9.3.5) despite the app/device compatibility notes saying they should!
Result is 30 iPad2s and 34 Sphero2s that we cannot use.
Please can we have access to a roll back to the version 4.0.2 that does work?
Thank you.
