SPRK+'s are truly amazing little round robots. Their sleek and transparent design is super clever and they are versatile, indestructible, and they include dozens of great lessons. Some of the lessons come from teachers and others come from their more than capable staff. The lessons encourage teamwork, collaboration, and creativity. Many of them employ open-ended challenges that require students to practice engineering design principles and make use of room, time, or material constraints. As a result of their utility, cost-effectiveness, and general coolness, we rate SPRK+'s as the top educational coding robots.
