Coding with Sphero

December 10th – 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm at Monroe One BOCES

Teaming up with Lindsay Neumire from Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES, this workshop is open to librarians of both regions. Sphero is a little round robot that’s not only fun to play with, but can be used effectively to teach coding concepts, math, and more! In this 1.5 hour hands-on workshop, attendees will learn to control Sphero, code with Sphero, and practice and discuss ways to use it to strengthen curricular concepts. This workshop is for School Librarians. Teachers may attend if they attend with their School Librarian with the intent to collaborate in the future.

Monroe One has a classroom set of Spheros for you to try out in your library available after the workshop.
