New Toys at SPARK!

Giant Light Bright

Brace yourself for a blast from the past. We’re certain you’ll feel nostalgic when you get your hands on the bigger than life-size version of this beloved toy. While attending an IAAPA conference in Orlando, Florida, the SPARK! team decided a Giant Light Bright was a great way to engage kids in fun, creative play. With more than five colors to choose from, guests can create words and images with sidewalk chalk-sized pegs. You can even black out spaces with black-colored pegs! The Giant Light Bright is available during all public events as well as scheduled group visits.

Web-Enabled Photo Kiosk

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words – and we believe you’ll have LOTS to say about SPARK! Check out the kiosk, strike a pose in front of the green screen and select from several SPARK! themed backdrops to get those creative juices flowing behind (and in front of) the lens. Be your own photographer and jump in front of scenes including the capsized ship and multi-colored mermaid. Throw a party or event at SPARK! and you’ll receive printing privileges for these special, hand-held memories. Customized backdrops with company logos or names are available for private events.

SPARK! Teen Board Inaugural Meeting

Introducing the inaugural SPARK! Teen Board. These teens are full of good ideas and ready to pull up their sleeves and get to work.  We have 14 youth who have signed on for a year of service to bring new ideas to SPARK!

At our first meeting, we got to know each other and worked on a creative installation project to paint recycled hubcaps. We talked about what it means to be on a board and what board positions exist. Next month, we will elect members to leadership positions and begin talking about a long term creative project.

We are thankful for these teens who have given their time to SPARK! Stay posted for more updates as we make progress!
