What do you get when you mash up a passion for making, education and technology, then put it on wheels? SparkTruck!
SparkTruck was born to revitalize hands-on learning for kids by introducing them to design challenges and empowering them with some cutting-edge tools like a laser cutter and some 3D printers. Infused with a spirit of curiosity, discovery and design--and supported by an enthusiastic community and successful Kickstarter campaign--SparkTruck drove over 14,000 miles across 33 different states, visiting over 2,000 students in more than 70 different locations during the summer of 2012.
If you care about learning, are concerned about the future of education, and just generally like to have fun making things, then plug in those headphones, turn up the volume and be inspired by the story of SparkTruck!
