About this app

Sphero Edu is your hub to create, contribute, and learn with Sphero robots. Go beyond code by incorporating unique STEAM activities to complete with your bot.

Designed for learner progression, Sphero Edu beginners can give robots commands by drawing a path in the app for their robot to follow. Intermediate coders can use Scratch blocks to learn more advanced logic, while pros can use text programming and write their own JavaScript.

Sphero Edu is built for makers, learners, educators, and parents. The interactive platform allows you to keep track of your class or group from one easy place. Anyone can save their progress, jump from device to device, and continue the discovery from anywhere. Preparing for the future has never been so fun.

It works perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy 9+. I have downloaded the app and it connects to my bluetooth, but it will not connect to the app. What am I doing wrong? other then that I would give it a Rating of 5. After playing with it for 3 days it finally connected to my surface pro 6. I think it was the bluetooth after I switched it on then off. restarted the surface it started working. Thanks!!!

BB8 isn't working as well as on the old app. When I try to connect my BB8 it doesn't even work and just glitches out, I bought my BB8 a few years ago and today I found it again, and decided to use it. It's so sad that they removed the app for no reason at all... Edit: if you downloaded the app in the past you can still download it if you go on the app list and press uninstalled, just scroll to the S and than you should be able to find it

Downloaded in an attempt to get my BB-8 up and running again; it's good but I can't seem to get it to connect to my droid. It says that it's successful when I do connect but the icon at the top right doesn't turn green like the one in the tutorial and when I select "Drive" it just asks me to choose a robot again. Is it because my device isn't compatible? My phone has Bluetooth 5.1 and the BB-8 is 4.0
