The S.P.A.R.K.S. Foundation

What is The S.P.A.R.K.S. Foundation?

The S.P.A.R.K.S. Foundation (Science Projects Are Really Kids’ Stuff) is a dynamic science education non-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to strengthening, enhancing and enriching students’ interest in science and STEM. Our hands-on STEM classroom programs inspire young minds to embrace the wonders of science, want to learn more, and to begin thinking about a future career in STEM. To date, we have brought more than $1 million worth of science programs to schools and income-eligible students.

We can only continue to make a difference with your help!

Please consider contributing $5 or more to your Science Explorers registration, when enrolling your child.
