Sphero Goes to School

27 Feb 2012

Right before his big debut, Sphero took an impromptu trip to the local Dawson School in Lafayette, CO. We converted the classroom into a massive race-track, and seven Spheros showed off their battery life all morning and rolled around with over forty kids. That's a lot of drive time! The middle-schoolers boosted over jumps, raced around the track, and perfected their favorite driving modes. Their favorite parts? Sphero's quick maneuverability and massive LED light spectrum. Dodging backpacks and retro desks, the trip was an adventure to remember.

The whole experience wouldn't have been possible without the help of the Middle School Technology Coordinator, Jeff Ellenbogen (although we secretly think he was more excited about Sphero than his students). Thanks, Jeff! Take a look at the video below to see what happens when Sphero rolls wild in the hallways.
