OUR PROGRAMS ARE ALL ABOUT ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT

MindSpark was founded in 2004 by Johnny Klein to provide a source of inspiration for business professionals as well as to engage thought leader with concepts of exploration and expanding thought, and to be a source of inspiration for business professionals.

Colorado Creative was founded in 2011, by Maia Stone, with a focus on STEM and youth. While MindSpark was searching for new leadership for a new phase, Colorado Creative was rebranding, and the two merged in 2013 with the new mission of providing curious people with the tools to explore their potential.

The ideas, mindset and outcomes of our different audiences were aligned regardless of both age and acumen. As a result of the merger, MindSpark is now run by Maia Stone, who brings a unique combination of creative spirit and technical expertise to the position. MindSpark provides guidance for youth in order to prepare them with essential skills for high achievement in today's economy.

The organization uses creative exploration to encourage interest in STEM fields. MindSpark creates an environment for learning that enables youth aged 5-18 to practice different methods of hands-on learning, emphasizing creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration.
