Virtual PD Workshop: Sphero in the Classroom

NASA-in-the-Classroom Professional Development Workshop

15 PD hours were completed on 8/13/20. VIRTUAL Hands-on Professional Development Workshop open to all ND educators

Stay at home and participate in this 100% virtual NASA-in-the-Classroom professional development workshop. Open to all North Dakota K-12 educators and education majors, participants will receive a free Sphero robot and join their class as they learn how to integrate coding into the curriculum. Participants will also be able to interview a NASA technology expert, as well as learn about other NASA education and funding opportunities to stay involved throughout the year.

Hosted by the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) and United Tribes Technical College (UTTC), we encourage interested educators to request a seat in the workshop, regardless of your experience levels, subject content areas, and teaching experience.
