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, visit https://edu.sphero.com/ .
WCPTH holds fundraisers throughout the year to support its many educational programs. Besides this donation to the library, WCPTH awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors, Citizenship Awards to graduating 8th graders, 5th Grade Reading Awards, a Spelling Bee, and Dr. Seuss reading events.
This year the Woman’s Club of Parsippany Troy Hills’ primary fundraiser, its 37th Annual Tee Off for Education Golf Classic & Luncheon, will be held on Tuesday, July 10th at the Knoll Country Club.
