Programs for Schools and Educators

Get your students excited about STEM, even online! Invite a STEM Sparks scientist to your online class to do hands-on STEM activities. Each workshops is designed for students at that grade level to participate independently, with minimal materials in activities correlated with Next Generation Science Standards.

Engineering Day is a hands-on, problem solving field trip right in your own school for all grades. Classes visit throughout the day in 45min blocks and students explore 8-10 hands-on challenges.

Inquiry Labs target grade-specific Next Generation Science Standards in a 90 minute class or after school program. Students construct understanding of science concepts and then put them to work in an engineering challenge.

Science and engineering activities are set up at your school for generations of scientists to work together to solve hands-on challenges

Teacher Professional Development

Professional development workshops can be tailored to the needs of your staff to provide hands-on experience with making and engineering and team planning on how to enrich existing ELA and STEM lessons with maker activities.
