MindSpark understands the creative realm was never intended to be limited merely to artists, writers and entertainers. As an organization, we have set out to uncover the minds of engineers and mathematicians, architects and designers, scientists and tinkers alike.
Oftentimes big new ideas and breakthroughs come from surveying different disciplines and exploring unfamiliar territory. MindSpark is a vehicle for prompting such unexpected, provocative interactions that demand critical, independent, and open thought.
So what do we do? MindSpark encourages independent thinking and entrepreneurship by tinkering with STEM.
What’s the purpose? We work to increase interest and involvement in Manufacturing & Design Industries.
Who cares? Curious, open people. People who know that STEM occupations will grow 1.7 times faster than non-STEM occupations from 2008 – 2018.
What do we provide these curious people? Tools to explore their potential.
What does that mean? How do we do that? We teach kids how to build things and make things, take them apart and put them together. We learn how to solve problems and think broadly about the future. Every day is time to experiment with new materials and technologies.
