You're a Hero!
In the Sphero indi: Community Heroes event, students are given the opportunity to highlight a community hero and tell their story through indi’s movements. Students have the option to use indi's color tiles (no screens required) to demonstrate algorithmic thinking and pattern recognition or use block coding in the new Sphero Edu Jr. app to program indi's behavior and movement.

DREAM TEAMS ASSEMBLE
Starting a team of real-life heroes is easy! Coaches do not need to be programmers, or even educators, to support students through the Sphero Global Challenge. Instead, act as a facilitator as students work to explore, solve problems, and unleash their creativity.
Sphero will provide a mission brief, lessons, and agendas for each event, as well as a forum for coaches to provide one another support. The Sphero Global Challenge is perfect for after-school programs, STEM/STEAM Clubs, school-day science blocks, or even for students to work on at home.
Structuring Your TeamTeams can consist of 1–5 students. A single team can compete in one or multiple events (depending on age bracket eligibility). For larger groups of students (i.e. robotics clubs), we recommend forming multiple teams. In this case, you will need to register each team separately. They can all compete in the same event(s) or choose different events. Coaches are welcome to lead as many teams as they'd like.
2021/2022 SEASON: FIVE UNIQUE STEM EVENTS
The competition, and its five unique events, are an opportunity for students to go deeper with computational thinking, engineering, and programming skills in our various STEM and coding competitions.
Teams and individuals of all abilities will work to identify problems and develop solutions, then submit entries virtually for a chance to qualify for the Sphero World Championship in Spring 2022.
