Our mission at Sphero is to inspire the creators of tomorrow. With Sphero Global Challenge (SGC), students are engaging in problem solving, computational thinking, collaboration, and more. The SGC provides an opportunity for students to compete with other students around the world with the top teams from each country invited to participate in a live competition in May 2021. To see qualifying criteria, please refer to the Competition Rules and Competition Rubrics documents. We believe that this challenge will provide students many opportunities to have fun and build lasting memories. We encourage you, as a coach, to invite as many students to participate as you can. The weekly guides will help all students participate fully, regardless of their experience level.
RVR is stationed on Mars and is expecting a supply mission to land. Program RVR and engineer solutions with littleBits to complete all of the missions for a successful Mars mission.
There will be 5 objectives that students will need to complete by programming RVR to navigate around the game field and by building littleBits inventions to interact with the physical world.
