What Our Clients Are Saying
“I’m in my second year of teaching engineering concepts with Kid Spark to kindergartners. I am amazed at how easily the students learn and start applying math, science and engineering concepts with Kid Spark. Since the concepts are taught in the context of designing, building and improving various types of structures, students are motivated to apply these concepts immediately in order to improve their creations.”
Lisa Schifrin, Teacher at Chollas Mead Elementary School, San Diego, CA
“I have used kids spark in my classroom this year. As a whole the program is running well. I have had the chance to use it with 20 different third grade classes, as well as 18 different fifth grade classes. What I like: -The clear lid with parts map, website is user friendly ,curriculum well planned.”
Kitty, Hermiston School District
“I really like the way the kits are organized. I think the curriculum is spot-on for older elementary kids. They love being able to make things move and having so many more components at their disposal. The design briefs have been engaging and challenging for them. We just started the Mechanisms and Movement unit and they LOVE being able to see their designs come to life with the Spark.”
Alicia Sandy, Bel Air Elementary
The program allowed them to explore like an engineer and imagine themselves as an inventor. Students were creating things and collaborating even more than in other lessons that I did
