What is Project Spark?

Something magical happens when a child plays.  The imagination ignites a world of possibility.  This place of imagination has no boundaries with safety from failure or finding the wrong answer.  When a child begins to explore new ideas in this limitless world, a spark occurs.  They are able to connect their play to their world, and ultimately create knowledge.  This transition is what project spark is all about.  It is about the place where play creates a connection that then grows into knowledge.

Project Spark explores the research and theories that support the power of makerspaces within student-centered learning.  Through makerspaces, Project Spark connects this playful learning to classroom standards.  Students are able to create and explore interests while achieving mastery of standards.
