The Sphero Bolt is Sphero’s most widely used in-school robot. This robot is larger than the Sphero Mini, and would be described as feeling around the same size as a baseball when held in one’s hand.  Bolt’s programmable sensors include a gyroscope, accelerometer, motor encoders, infrared communications and a light sensor.  The built-in compass lets users automatically aim and drive the robot.

Sphero has a huge library of educational resources for all levels of coding skill to use in conjunction with the Sphero Bolt. Additionally, their home-learning guide is a great place for adults to get started with this fun robot!
