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. 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.

Supported Robots: Sphero RVR/RVR+, Sphero BOLT, Sphero SPRK+, Sphero SPRK Edition, Sphero 2.0, Sphero Mini, Ollie, BB-8, BB-9E, R2-D2, R2-Q5

Unsupported Robots: Sphero Original, Force Band, Lightning McQueen, Spider-Man, indi

Disable Free Drive Mode?

We love the Sphero Edu app and the ability to help kids understand the basics of coding!

The only problem we have is that kids will often get sidetracked once they find out how to just drive the sphero around like an RC car. Is there any way to disable this feature? That’d be really helpful. If there isn’t a way to currently do this it’d be something nice to see in future updates!!

Developer Response ,

Greetings - Thanks for your message. There is not currently a way to disable to drive feature in the Sphero Edu app -- but we will most certainly pass along your feedback. Glad to hear your students are using Sphero Edu to learn some basics of coding! Please email us, support@sphero.com if you have any other questions. Thanks very much!

Pretty cool 😎

🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄 Ok let’s get started:
First, I would like to know if there is any way to block people. I was scrolling through the programs people posted and saw something very very disturbingly creepy (I can’t unsee it now) that somebody decided to use as the pic they posted the program with. Kids my age shouldn’t have to see what I saw, that was too much for me to handle. If there is already a way to block people, I probably haven’t been looking hard enough, lol 😂
Also, I think that we should be able to do more stuff besides make programs if you don’t have a public account. It would be nice if there was a little guide that told you what each block does—e.g. explain how they work. I’m a first time programmer so I don’t know what “create a variable” and “true && true” means. Thx!
Overall this is pretty fun. But since I don’t know what most of the blocks do—except for “move” and “speak”, ha ha—it’s gotten hard to create most programs. Thanks for understanding!

Something wrong with my bolt

I used to love Sphero but I am very disappointed at it now. I got a Sphero bolt for Christmas a year ago,I didn't use it just much and it was very well taken care of but 3 months later it wouldn't charge . I contacted sphero customer support somebody told me a couple things that I could try but that didn't work. I got it for Christmas so I don't know where it was from I didn't have the box either. I was told that I could only get a replacement if it was from the Sphero itself. My bolt broke within the one year warranty. Although I am frustrated with Sphero, Devrann Harding was a good customer support agent.

Best regards

Developer Response ,

HI Luke -- if you're able to provide proof of purchase and you're within a year warranty we will gladly replace your BOLT. thanks for checking.
