Spark funding supports projects in the greater Pittsburgh region that help children develop hands-on skills and digital literacies by expanding their capacity “to do” as well as “to know”. Grants are available up to $15,000. Eligible projects primarily target children age 10 and under.
Spark supports a network of innovators and organizations empowering children and youth by creating relevant learning opportunities through the compelling use of technology, media, and the arts. Spark provides a sustainable structure for Remake Learning, a network of teachers, gamers, roboticists, artists, designers, and child development experts who have been working together since 2007.
By providing catalytic support, technical assistance, knowledge sharing, and enhanced communications to the Remake Learning Network, Spark catalyzes more relevant and imaginative learning opportunities that make compelling use of technology, media, and the arts, and build greater awareness of and access to remarkable learning experiences for children, youth, and families.
