What is Sphero Heroes?
Sphero Heroes is a Sphero and littleBits ambassador program designed to recognize and celebrate the great work of pioneering teachers around the world. To date, we’ve recruited 90+ educators who are using Sphero robots and littleBits kits to transform education in their classrooms and beyond.
Three years of the Sphero Heroes program has been an overwhelming success! Our Heroes joined forces to hit the ground running and collaborated with us in some amazing ways - product development, content creation, webinars, professional learning, and more. Most importantly they lended a virtual hand by supporting one another during these uncertain times of hybrid/blended learning by sharing ideas and best practices.
“Sphero Heroes is unlike any other ambassador programs I’m part of. What I like especially is how personal it is. I love that I’m the first to know about new things and also how directly I chat with the Sphero team.” - Ingvi Omarsson
"I am fortunate to be a member of a number of teacher ambassador programs. The smaller nature of the Sphero Hero group allows for a closer relationship with the company and provides the support, tools and encouragement to ‘do what we do’. Whether it is via email, community discussion or Slack channel, Sphero has created an awesome network that allows us to share, learn and support each other creatively on a regular basis.” - Peter Abt
