Last week I had the pleasure of bringing Sphero to Centaurus High School in Lafayette, CO for their career day. Among all the other booths trying to show these eager minds what to do with their lives, Sphero was definitely a unique stop for each child that walked by. It was so mind blowing to hear some of the ideas about Sphero. I could see the glow of excitement as some of the kids discussed the idea of "the startup" and following your dream. I had some great discussions about the SDK and how they could start writing their own apps for Sphero, and even noticed a few new additions to our development community. I can only dream to think someone from that school will win the nobel prize someday and start with the story of the guy that brought the robotic ball to his high school career day and told him to simply follow his passion, no matter what!
It was a great experience and I am so grateful to be able to do my part in shaping our youth of future Sphero engineers!
