Creator Studio


PREPARING TODAY’S STUDENTS FOR TOMORROW’S OPPORTUNITIES

The SPARK! Creator Studio provides students ages ten (10) through high school a collaborative workshop environment where they can use a wide array of tools and technologies to build, invent, create and problem-solve. This program combines the equipment of a Makerspace, technology of a Computer Lab and materials of a Tinker Studio.

Students are trained to use a variety of analog and digital tools, attend skill-building workshops led by professionals, artists, artisans and engineers, and engage in self-selected and self-directed projects based on their strengths and interests.

Hours: Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Cost:  Because of our generous benefactors, the SPARK! Creator Studio is offered free of charge.
