Our indi learning robot offers unplugged and connected coding experiences that sharpen creative problem-solving and computational thinking skills. Students learn cause and effect, pattern recognition, the basics of block coding, and understand abstraction—all while having fun!
Design & Create: Design and build any maze imaginable, just like an engineer.
Screenless Learning: Sharpen computational thinking skills through hands-on interactive play.
Coding Concepts: Learn basic programming skills with our new drag and drop blocks in the Sphero Edu Jr app, designed just for indi.
On-board Colour Sensor: The color sensor and color tiles provide endless opportunities to rev kids’ creativity by building mazes that program indi to drive.
Endless Activities: Endless fun and learning with the printed materials that have activities with ranging complexity. Solve pre-made puzzles or create your own.
Designed for Students: Built to engage small groups of of all abilities as they embark on their coding and robotics journey.
Easy Screenless Onboarding
Step 1: Discover how indi reacts to each color tile.
Step 2: Build mazes with endless combinations of color tiles.
Step 3: Strengthen problem-solving skills by navigating the challenging puzzles you build.
Sphero Edu Jr™ App
Learn the basics of programming with the color tiles or level up with Sphero’s all new drag and drop blocks in the Sphero Edu Jr app, designed just for indi. Control how indi reacts to the world through intuitive yet powerful programming blocks or enhance computational thinking skills by creating new patterns and solving puzzles.
App Features: Use Sphero Edu Jr’s all new block programming to understand the basics of coding and computer science principles.
Sends the program directly to indi, so you don’t have to worry about disconnections while running your program or solving mazes.
Control indi’s lights and choose between solid colors and different light patterns on the top LED.
Reprogram how indi responds to different colors by choosing from a variety of movements, lights, and sounds that appear when you navigate over the associated color tile.
Control the sounds your robot makes and have indi play notes to songs as it passes over the color tiles.
Control indi’s movements with different program directions and animated movements like a celebration dance.
Send a custom program to indi and have your students try to figure out what was sent.
In addition to programming indi, Sphero Edu Jr allows you to drive indi with intuitive controls.
