Sphero’s Matt Mead Presents EFDN STEM Network at 14th EFDN Conference

Sphero’s Sports Partnership Manager, Matt Mead, was among the speakers at the 14th EFDN Conference last week. His presentation on “Fostering a Passion to Learn STEM Skills Through Football, Coding and Play!” outlined the importance of growing STEM skills in youth and how football can be used as a tool to promote STEM education and engage more young children. Mead also took the opportunity to announce the EFDN STEM Network.

The EFDN STEM Network is created to fill open STEM positions through a collaboration with industry leaders, governments, educators and parents who are searching for solutions that will enable them to fulfil student’s excitement. Sphero has become the #1 STEM-based learning solutions company, loved by millions of kids, educators and parents worldwide. The main objective is to make undeniably cool, programmable robots and STEM-based educational tools that transform the way kids learn, create, and invent through coding, science, music, and the arts. It definitely drives kids to turn their imagination into reality.  

On the 28th of January 2021, EFDN and Sphero will host the first virtual EFDN STEM Network Conference. The aim of the event is to share information on STEM education and membership in the EFDN STEM Network. Follow this link to register for the Conference.

The partnership between EFDN and Sphero promises a bright future. EFDN will continue to offer support to members that want to start up or further invest in football-based STEM Education programmes.
