Get to know indi:

The robot for early learners that is driven by color

Speed into STEAM with indi—the most approachable entry-level learning robot for ages 4+. indi inspires imaginative, play-based learning by empowering kids to design and build their own mazes while creating opportunities for students to learn the basics of coding, solve problems, and nurture computational thinking skills. 

  • DESIGN AND CREATE: Teach kids to problem solve like an engineer as they design and build colorful, custom mazes for indi to navigate 
  • SCREENLESS & APP-ENABLED OPTIONS: Kids learn the basics of programming with the included color cards (no screen required) or level up with Sphero’s all-new, simplified drag-and-drop blocks in the free Sphero Edu Jrapp, designed just for indi
  • SPARK CREATIVITY: Customize indi with stickers and encourage creative expression and exploratory learning by driving indi through endless mazes and pathways
  • HOURS OF FUN, RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX: As soon as kids open their indi, they begin learning cause and effect, pattern recognition, colors, directions, and more as they play at home

How Does indi Work?

Screenless Coding

With indi’s onboard color sensor, young learners can communicate instructions to indi by placing color tiles on the floor that tell it what to do and where to go (and how fast!).

 

Connected coding

Once kids have mastered screenless programming, they can learn basic block coding concepts in free the Sphero Edu Jr app by reconfiguring how indi reacts to each color: adding new movements, lights, sounds, and even celebrations!

Getting Started

indi is ready to program right out of the box—no setup or device required.

 

Step 1

Discover how indi reacts to each color tile.

Step 2

Build mazes with endless combinations of color tiles.

 

Step 3

Strengthen problem-solving skills by navigating the challenging puzzles you build.

 

indi Resources

Check out tools, guides, and accessories for using indi at school or at home.


Challenge Cards

Young learners can work independently or in groups through self-guided learning with the 15 included Challenge Cards with little to no instruction from the teacher.

(Included with the indi Student Kit and Class Pack Only)



Beginner’s Guide to Programming Booklet

The Beginner’s Guide to Programming Booklet provides tricks and hints for getting started with the indi At-Home Learning Kit. The guide gives specially-designed visuals to help kids learn what each color means, as well as provides puzzles to expand learning.


indi Supporting Literacy Development

indi incorporates problem solving and computational thinking to support early learning in literacy and language development. indi also supports the development of big ideas in early mathematics such as counting, patterns, measurement, spatial relationships, and shapes.



Sphero Edu Jr App™

Introductory coding with indi

Control how indi reacts to the world through intuitive yet powerful programming blocks. Reprogram how indi responds to different colors by choosing from a variety of movements, lights, and sounds that appear when you navigate over the associated color tile.

indi Colors

 

The indi Student Kit and Class Pack include durable, latex-free rubber color tiles that are easy to clean and made to last. The indi At-Home Learning Kit includes color cards made from cardstock with adhesive tape to keep the cards in place. With the indi Class Pack, educators receive bonus color cards for extending or creating additional mazes.

Make Your Own Colors

Some may wish to create their own color tiles, cards, or paths for indi. Keep in mind that each color is programmed into the firmware and instantly recognizable by indi. Other color sources, such as construction paper and markers, may not provide as consistent of an experience as using the color tiles and/or cards included with your indi(s).

Here are the Pantone colors indi is designed to respond to:

  • indi Red  Pantone 805 C (#ff7276)
  • indi Orange Pantone 904 C (#ffcd8a)
  • indi Yellow Pantone 903 C (#fff36d)
