Join us as we explore the world of Sphero Minis and the wide spectrum of what they can do! We’ll start by learning all the ways to control Sphero’s movement. From there, we'll build and test our mini golf course, design new challenges and create our own experiments. We'll learn to use a phone or tablet to sling, tilt, and putt our robot through our obstacles, eventually connecting our Sphero Mini to the computer and learning to code our robots for full control and precise movement. In addition to creating a mini golf course, there will be opportunities to test the limits of the Mini, learning to code in an understandable way and creating our own stories.
