This is a group for kids and families interested in learning how to program using Sphero robots. Sphero is a robotic ball gaming system and has several levels of programming - from beginner to expert. No equipment is needed but if you have a smartphone - bring it - it might be more fun to use your own device. The Meetup is hosted by the company Sphero located in Boulder, Colorado. Kids need no programming experience. We hope to run Meetups more frequently but we are a small team. If you can't make this event stay tuned for upcoming Sphero Rangers events.
We know that kids love Sphero, so we turned that love into learning and creation. Sphero makes the skills of the future approachable and practical. And most importantly, fun. During this Meetup we will use our new SPRK app. The SPRK app experience lets you give your robot the orders with visual blocks representing code - our own C-based language called OVAL. Immediately see the connection between the program you created and how the guts of your Sphero work and react. Programming with Sphero will inspire a love of robotics, coding, and STEAM principles… all through play.
