The following is a list of current needs…
Mentors - Do you have science, tech, engineering, art or math skills that you'd like to share?
Teachers – one of the goals of Dtown Sparks is to be STEAM based. We can use assistance with making sure projects embrace STEAM learning.
Space – we're in need of free semi-permanent space where we can spread out and work with the kids. Ideally we're trying to find some space in the boro.
Materials & Resources – we’re looking for technology, building materials and resources. Things the students can hack, build, tinker and create with. Drop us a line if you interested in donating something.
