BRIGHTON, England, April 13, 2021 -- ICP Search, an award-winning tech search organization, is excited to announce a unique Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) collaboration with Sphero, a Boulder, Colorado-based robotics and STEM education technology company, and its sports-themed coding and robotics experience, Sphero Sports

Sphero Sports is an innovative sports and robotics solution to advance STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning across education and teach today's students the critical STEM skills needed for the modern-day world and future tech-economy. The excitement of this robotics program is that Sphero inspires students via coding passes, programming dribbles, and scoring goals, all done via a very cool programmable robotic ball. 

Together, ICP Search and Sphero Sports will support new and existing ICP Search technology disruptors engage in meaningful CSR activities via innovative sports and robotics programming, which will inspire and motivate young people to pursue STEM learning and develop the digital skills required for tomorrow's workforce. 

"We are excited and fully committed to working with Sphero,” says Gary Peters, Chief Executive of ICP Search. “We see this unique and engaging sports-themed robotics platform as the perfect way to raise awareness of tech in local schools. Working together with some of our prestigious clients in the UK, we will engage their employees in a proactive volunteering program, utilizing their technological knowledge and industry experiences to inspire the future generation. This is a fantastic CSR initiative and the partnership with Sphero Sports will inspire thousands of very lucky young people for years to come!" 

This new direction for ICP Search will further extend the impact and value provided by the specialist recruitment platform and help brands to proactively make a difference in their chosen communities, engage employees in big picture volunteering, whilst also offering brands a unique platform to support STEM learning in students, especially as a proactive response to the global disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

“As leaders in STEM education it is our responsibility to help teach, influence, and shape young minds,” says Matt Mead, Sphero's Head of Corporate & Sports Partnerships. "That’s why Sphero’s mission is to inspire the creators of tomorrow, to help shape the next generation so they can achieve more than the generations who came before them. Sphero Sports is a fantastic complement to our vision, as the power of combining sports with STEM learning, piques students' interest and uses the connection and appeal of their favourite sport or sports team to engage them in STEM experiences which will broaden their academic knowledge base and better prepare them for the jobs of the future."
