Ways to Code Using Sphero Edu
Sphero Edu users can code Sphero robots 3 different ways:
This simpler method of programming is intended for grades PK-2, and is simply named "Draw". Users draw lines to program their robot and can modify the speed and color. Be sure to check out our introductory Draw Activities on Sphero Edu.
Intermediate coders can utilize the familiar block-based drag and drop interface. Pre-programmed blocks allow for a wide variety of actions and variables. New to block programming? Check out our Blocks intro activities.

Users can view live and archived sensor data. An export function also allows users to export the sensor data analysis.
Users can only view archived sensor data. There is no live view available. The Chrome app supports sensor data export as well.
