About littleBits

We’re on a mission to put the power of electronics in the hands of everyone, and to break down complex technologies so that anyone can build, prototype, and invent.

About Sphero

Sphero makes remarkably cool, programmable robots and STEAM-based educational toys that transform the way kids learn, create, and invent through coding, science, music, and the arts.

The Sphero ecosystem of tools and content gives kids, teachers, and parents of all learning and coding abilities a blank canvas to solve challenges at home, in school, and beyond.

Kids don’t just want to code, they want to use their imagination to create epic experiences. Sphero goes #BeyondCode and inspires kids to learn, build, create, and turn their imagination into reality. Most importantly, Sphero makes it fun.

The skills students unlock through coding prepare them to thrive, no matter what subject or career they pursue. Sphero robots and STEAM kits help bring math, science, music, and art lessons off the pages of a textbook and into real-world applications.
