    • Kids go crazy for these in our school!

      We recently bought 12 of these to add on to the 3 we had to make 1/2 classroom set for our school as students were fighting over coding with them. They are great to use for any age and any S.T.E.A.M challenge! LOVE that they are waterproof which makes for some interesting lifeboat rescue challenges. My kids at home (ages 7 and 8) love them too :-) Was a bit nervous at first with them banging the Sphero's into walls etc. but after reading about how they're actually made for that (there's a ping pong game 1 person can play that involves the ball running into a wall) it's been a free for all for how the kids can handle them (with exception to not allowing them to roll off a table or something). All in all the students in my school and my own 2 kids go crazy every time I mention bringing out the Sphero SPRK+.
