The Importance of STEM

Continuing with STEM or STEAM learning at home provides a wealth of benefits for kids, especially in elementary grades. A recent study shows the correlation of STEM education, specifically computer science, and improved students’ attitudes and academic achievement. Without STEM, children may regress or lose out on this valuable growth potential.

Child Wellbeing

STEAM learning is so much more than writing code and sitting in front of a screen all day. Sphero robots and STEAM Kits are designed to promote physical activity, mental stimulation, creativity, and inspire kids’ imaginations, which contributes to a better, overall well-being.

Musical Tech for Kids

Sphero Specdrums

Specdrums are app-connected rings that make your world more musical. Tap a color, hear a sound. Launch a themed sound pack in the Specdrums app to DJ anywhere, anytime, or tap the rings to hear words, numbers and sound effects, or record custom audio in the app.

Built with sleek technology, Specdrums is an approachable musical instrument that provides an accessible, portable, and tactile way for anyone to discover music creation. Easy for beginners to explore but open-ended for advanced musicians to get creative, Specdrums provides an outlet for practicing music using your hands without loud, expensive, and large physical instruments.
