SPHERO GLOBAL COMPETITION​

Untitled design.png

The Sphero Global Challenge is the ultimate STEM competition and an opportunity for students to go deeper with computational thinking, engineering, and programming skills. Students will compete in groups of 5. Teams of all abilities are encouraged to work together to identify problems and develop solutions centered around the year's theme (Sphero Goes Incognito). Through this challenge, students will work to accomplish their goals in Regional and State Final competitions and ultimately a World Championship in Spring 2024!
