Sphero Heroes ambassador programme application opens 5th November

London, 6th November 2018 ‒ Sphero, the technology company utilising play as a powerful teacher, has announced the opening of its 2019 Sphero Heroes ambassador programme, designed to recognise and celebrate the great work of pioneer teachers around the world.

After receiving an overwhelming response to last year’s programme, Sphero has collaborated with 18 Sphero Heroes around the world on product development, content creations, events and more. Building on the successes of the inaugural year, Sphero are welcoming entries for this year’s programme that allows educational professionals from around the world and across disciplines to share their classroom findings within a Sphero-supported community.

Once selected, these educators will continue their work as a Certified Sphero Hero and be a representative for Sphero Edu. As the programme continues to build, the existing Heroes will remain an active part of the group and help inspire the new ambassadors.

“Our inaugural 17 Heroes are global, innovative, and talented and have inspired our company mission with their unique backgrounds and experiences,” says David Millage, vice president of education at Sphero. “Sphero Edu continues to push the envelope to provide access to STEAM learning. We aim to give kids an educational journey that embraces the world around them, while having fun with our robots. Coding is a global language, and this ambassador programs allows us to connect and foster growth in all regions; we want more Heroes from around the world to join our current Heroes from Iceland, New Zealand, the UK, and more”.

Applicants will be tasked with showcasing their knowledge of Sphero robots and abilities to use the robots to transform teaching and learning in their classrooms and beyond. For more information about Sphero Heroes or to apply, visit: https://www.sphero.com/education/heroes/
