The Sphero Mini/Sphero SPRK+ STEM Kit is more than a robot kit; it's a learning experience that inspires cadets and students through its interactive applications. Each is a small orb wrapped in polycarbonate plastic, capable of rolling around, changing colors, running programs, and being controlled by a smartphone or tablet. Working with the Sphero Edu app, Mini and SPRK+ will motivate, create, and excite users as they paint, swim, and/or dance with the help of the Sphero Edu app and youth imagination. This kit comes with Sphero SPRK+, a charging base with USB charging cable, maze tape, 360-degree protractor, sticker sheet, Quick Start guide, Sphero Mini, USB Charging cord, and set of small bowling pins. Tip sheets and lessons are found in the Learning Management System section of CAP's member portal, eServices. But, student and adult creativity will guide the unique usage of this kit!
