Get to know indi:

The robot for early learners that is driven by color

Speed into STEAM with indi—the most approachable entry-level learning robot for ages 4+. indi inspires imaginative, play-based learning by empowering kids to design and build their own mazes while creating opportunities for students to learn the basics of coding, solve problems, and nurture computational thinking skills.

Design and build any maze imaginable, just like an engineer.

Solve puzzles—or create your own— with the with the included color tiles.

Sharpen computational thinking skills through hands-on, interactive play.

Learn basic programming skills with our new drag-and-drop blocks designed just for indi in the Sphero Edu Jr app

How Does indi Work?

Screenless Coding

With indi’s onboard color sensor, young learners can communicate instructions to indi by placing color tiles on the floor that tell it what to do and where to go (and how fast!).

Connected coding

Once kids have mastered screenless programming, they can learn basic block coding concepts in free the Sphero Edu Jr app by reconfiguring how indi reacts to each color: adding new movements, lights, sounds, and even celebrations!

Getting Started

indi is ready to program right out of the box—no setup or device required.

Step 1

Discover how indi reacts to each color tile.

Step 2

Build mazes with endless combinations of color tiles.

Step 3

Strengthen problem-solving skills by navigating the challenging puzzles you build.

Webinar

Empowering Young Learners: Computational Thinking & Problem Solving with indi

It's never too early to help young learners better understand computational thinking and problem-solving skills and why these skills are so important to their learning journey. In this webinar you'll learn how indi helps teach these skills from a young age.

indi Colors

The indi Student Kit and Class Pack include durable, latex-free rubber color tiles that are easy to clean and made to last. The indi At-Home Learning Kit includes color cards made from cardstock with adhesive tape to keep the cards in place. With the indi Class Pack, educators receive bonus color cards for extending or creating additional mazes.

Make Your Own Colors

Some may wish to create their own color tiles, cards, or paths for indi. Keep in mind that each color is programmed into the firmware and instantly recognizable by indi. Other color sources, such as construction paper and markers, may not provide as consistent of an experience as using the color tiles and/or cards included with your indi(s).

Here are the Pantone colors indi is designed to respond to:

Pantone 805 C

(#ff7276)

Pantone 904 C

(#ffcd8a)

Pantone 903 C

(#fff36d)

Pantone 902 C

(#8de971)

Pantone 808 C

(#ff7276)

Pantone 915 C

(#ffcd8a)

Pantone 928 C

(#fff36d)

Pantone 927 C

(#8de971)

Additional color options are below. Keep in mind that these are closest to the Pantone colors but are not an exact match and may not work as intended.
