Science Sparks


Science Sparks programs are designed for learners K-2nd grade. Each class can be its own hour-long, curiosity-driven program, or you can combine up to five topics to create a series for after school or summer. Classes emphasize:

  • problem-based curriculum
  • persistence through continued failure
  • small group exploration and peer-to-peer support (rather than teacher-led instruction)
  • using new information to reframe current ways of thinking

Topics include:

  • Bridge Design Challenge
  • Roller Coaster Science
  • Light It Up! (Circuits)
  • Build A Catapult (Levers)
  • Owl Pellet Dissection (Food Chains)
  • Inventing with Rigamajig
