Woman’s Club Donates to Parsippany Library’s Spheros Robotic Learning Program

PARSIPPANY — The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills (WCPTH) just made a generous donation to the Parsippany Library System to purchase six additional Spheros, an app enabled robotic ball for students to play with and at the same time learn programming and coding.  Students can program and drive the Sphero robots using the Sphero Edu app on a Smartphone or tablet. The Parsippany Library System uses the Sphero robots during STEAM programs and at outreach visits to Parsippany area schools. The Sphero robots encourage endless creativity and at the same time learning in children.For more information on Spheros click here.
