Dear friends and colleagues,
CNS is proud to announce that SPARKmakers is now official. The inauguration event was this past Sept. 27th at The BLOC Party at Vernon Park.
SPARKmakers is a “thinkering” portable lab and consulting/teaching venture. Through our innovative, culturally relevant, and holistic approach to Art and Design Education,our mission is to advance the design of hands-on minds-on curriculums which combine Art and Design Thinking with Science, Technology, Culture and Activism.
We believe by engaging youth and young adults in “thinkering” with the fundamental concepts underlying how the world around us works – by exploring, solving problems, troubleshooting, creating projects on their own, working together, sharing skills and ideas – they gain a sense of independence and be better prepare to solve complex challenges in life.
