New Schools for 2020

After reaching 15 schools across Chicagoland, we're planning to expand into 5 more this school year! We are building long-lasting relationships with schools that are committed to supporting their students’ STEM learning.

If you know a school looking for hands-on engineering for their students, put them in touch with us at hello@sparkshop.org.
