2 Simple Ways to Learn Computer Science with Sphero

Helping teachers integrate computational thinking and computer science (CS) into their Project Based Learning (PBL) units is a BIG part of my coaching work with schools and districts throughout the US. So, whether my sessions cover coding, STEM learning at home, or reinforcing math skills with robots, I require reliable tools for helping teachers build their content knowledge and CS practice in useful and systematic ways.
