Serious fun, but also serious learning in electronics, math, computational thinking, and more. When programming a robot, kids get instant feedback on whether their code is successful. Spark Space has robots for all ages and skill levels, from Blue-Bots and Makey Makey to The Finch Robot and Arduino Circuit Kits.
With access to Spark Space creative design tools—drawing tablets, Go-Pro style cameras, digital microphones, Hemingway Editor, and the full Adobe Creative Suite—the possibilities for creative expression (and learning) are limitless!
Spark Space offers free homework help from staff and volunteers, along with access to the Internet, computers, tablets, charging stations, color printing, and resources for independent learning. Leapfrog gaming/educational tablets are available for younger kids to use while older siblings work on homework.
