SPARK DAY THEMES
We offer a variety of Spark Day themes to give your students a taste Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Let us know if one sparks your interest.
How do innovators and inventions disrupt the way we work and play? With your crew, experiment, tinker, and build your way through five STEAM stations to explore and discover disruptive innovations in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.
Can your crew put STEAM into action to survive on a desert island? Learn about the science of water filtration, engineer a shelter to stay safe and dry, devise a high-tech device to signal for rescuers, and more!
How do we use STEAM to reduce landfill waste, clean up oil spills, create eco-friendly products, and practice more sustainable living? Tinker, play, and learn about everything from renewable energy to creative reuse as your crew works together to help save the earth.
What makes STEAM meaningful and relevant for your students and teachers? We've designed Spark Days to celebrate the 100th Day of School, Pi Day, Women in STEAM, and more. Let us partner with you to create a custom Spark Day for your community.
