With schools worldwide now back in session, either in-person, hybrid or virtual, parents and educators alike are looking for ways to implement high-quality STEM learning in a safe and effective way. At Sphero, we’re working diligently to ensure everyone feels supported during this unprecedented and unusual back-to-school season. That’s why we’ve created four new at-home learning kits that are designed for parents to help teach coding at home and for educators to facilitate STEAM lessons in a remote or hybrid learning environment. 

Let’s take a look at each STEM kit more in depth, as well as the other COVID-19 resources we’ve compiled for both parents and educators.
