SPRK+ is just a matter of selecting that particular robot from the list of options (which also includes Sphero 2.0, Sphero Mini, and BB-8) and tapping your phone against the ball. Once it’s connected, the robot will light up and be ready to use. It employs Bluetooth for the connection, and has around a 30m range.

Info for teachers:
For beginners. Children from 6 years old can use it.
Program a painting. Navigate a maze. Mimic the solar system. Swim across the water. Have a dance party… The only limit is your imagination.
SPRK+ will foster a love of robotics, coding, and STEAM principles… all through play.
Now you can program your Sphero with blocks or text-based code. Kids can learn to program the robot with blocks then evolve to coding with OVAL which, in turn, can help familiarize them with how C, C++, Python, Ruby, and other languages work. However, coding your Sphero with OVAL is not required. OVAL simply provides a path for kids who want to evolve from block programming to other languages.
