At this event, you will be introduced to the 'Everyone Can Code' curriculum. MCC will explain how the apps and features in the curriculum can help kids learn how to code, through the use of interactive puzzles and playful characters. Sphero will then display all of the creative ways their educational kits can be used, and why educators, coders and artists from many different areas love to use them. It's an amazing chance to learn more about what coding really involves, and the ways to deliver this to children in the classroom.
