The elementary and middle school STEM education programs are a fun, effective, and affordable way to develop your students' STEM Identity and Technology Fluency.

  • STEM Identity - Seeing one's self as capable of learning and understanding science, technology, engineering and math.
  • Technology Fluency - The confidence and skills to creatively author with technology to solve real world problems and design new solutions.

The Kid Spark curriculum follows the NGSS Three Dimensions of Science Learning:  Crosscutting Concepts, Science and Engineering Practices, and Disciplinary Core ideas.

Start young and don't stop

Closing the STEM achievement gap means providing applied STEM curriculum every year, starting in the earliest grades.  Kid Spark programs provide progressive units of instruction that engage students through elementary and middle school.

Mentors Matter

Having a teacher who is an instructor, role model, and STEM mentor all in one is critical for children.  An educator's encouragement can make all the difference for young or inexperienced students' ability to persist in STEM.

Make it easy and affordable

Schools can struggle to afford complex and expensive STEM education. Kid Spark offers sustainable and easily managed STEM programs that use existing staff and facilities, and reusable materials. Applying for a Kid Spark grant can make these programs even more affordable.

Kid Spark PK - 8 STEM Programs

Kid Spark offers comprehensive, applied STEM programs for elementary and middle school that include curriculum, professional learning, and mobile STEM labs. The Kid Spark curriculum consists of four progressive learning phases that span from PK to 8th grade.

Kidspark Pk 8 Comprehensive Curriculum

Comprehensive Curriculum

Kid Spark's easy-to-use curriculum can be taught in any classroom, by any teacher. Kid Spark programs build students’ foundational understanding of STEM concepts, then move on to explore more challenging concepts such as mechanical engineering, computer-aided design, and programmable robotics.

Kid Spark Pk 8 Professional Learning

Professional Learning

Many elementary and middle school teachers have some anxiety about teaching STEM, especially if they don't have specialized training in STEM. But with Kid Spark’s online, virtual, and/or in-person professional learning modules, educators find that teaching STEM isn’t just
easy—it’s fun, too.

Kid Spark Pk 8 Mobile Stem Labs

Mobile STEM Labs

Goodbye, popsicle sticks. Kid Spark’s robust and reusable materials make teaching STEM easy and affordable. The entire curriculum can be taught using the same two labs year after year, across grade levels and topics.
