The Adirondack STEAM Program is thrilled to announce outstanding achievements of their students in the Sphero Global Challenge.  This is the fourth season of the Sphero Global Challenge, hailed as the ultimate STEM competition. This event, providing students with an unparalleled opportunity to delve deeper into computational thinking, engineering, and programming skills featured over 300 teams of middle school and elementary students spanning 7 countries.  Sponsored by the renowned Sphero Robotics company and STEM It Up Sports, the competition challenges participants to design, program, and navigate their robots through a series of missions and obstacles. It serves as a platform for students to showcase their creativity, problem-solving abilities, and teamwork—all essential components of success in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).
