Back to Challenges

STEAM topic(s) Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths

RVR is made for makers, hackers, coders – and you. Sphero’s revolutionary take on what it means to be programmable, this all-terrain robot is built for customization. Code with it, build on it and hack the robot of your dreams. With RVR, you can go anywhere and do anything. Drive anywhere with RVR’s powerful motor, all-terrain treads, and high torque output. A customizable expansion plate lets you connect third-party hardware and change the mobile robot’s look and feel (Future plans in place to procure 3D printer). Packed with tons of advanced robot sensors that you can code and hack (Legally that is!) As We are aware there are many different learning styles so the RVRs offer to learn and create how to program through play-based learning.
