Playing with Sphero this summer!

Sphero is pretty cool.  The Learning Curve got it a couple of months ago and we are still figuring out cool things you can do with it.  Sphero is a mechanical ball that pairs with an iPad and is then controlled through that iPad.  Today, we used a Sphero app and some K’Nex to make our own Croquet court and play some Croquet!  Come join us sometime to take your own crack at it, or some of the other cool tech we have!

Then, we made our own paper gardens with an assortment of green stems and colorful flowers on top!
