Description

It's Computer Science Education Week and Sphero wants to celebrate with your classrooms!

Sphero is the dream team. We are the ones defining the future of fun. We're equal parts innovator, nerd, genius, joker, hustler, and a tiny bit of cool, when we have our moments. We fuse robotic and digital technology into immersive entertainment experiences that ignite imagination and defy expectation. Optimized by data and powered by fun, these ever-evolving experiences are changing the way the world thinks about learning and play.

Meet the people that bring Sphero robots to life.

Key Questions

Expected Outcomes

Sphero employees are makers, believers, and creators. We want to chat with students about our jobs and why we love what we do, the importance of STEAM, and advice we have for pursuing technology now and for a future career. CSEd Week is a time to celebrate the advances and importance of CS education. Hear from Sphero engineers, product managers, artists and more about what steps we took to get here, and how our jobs play a key role in developing new products for Sphero.
