Unlock the power of programming
Sphero Edu is partnering with CodeFWD by Facebook, a free program for a select number of applicants of teachers and other adults working with 4th through 8th graders in the U.S.
Together, Sphero Edu and CodeFWD are working to expand participation of underrepresented minority students in programming, including Black, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and female communities. By partnering with Sphero Edu, CodeFWD can help expand access and participation so that the next generation of tech innovators better reflects and incorporates diversity.
Sphero Edu and CodeFWD are offering free Sphero BOLT robots, a charging hub, and Course 1 of Sphero’s Computer Science Foundations– a dynamic, standards-aligned curriculum designed to be taught in the classroom alongside Sphero robots.
