Thank you Panteras, Team 2283

Thank you Panteras, Team 2283 for your translation of our Spark kit instruction book in Spanish.  Your translation will help numerous groups to communicate the scientific experiments to new audiences.

Exploding Bacon greatly appreciates the time you spent translating the instructions and experiment information the to help the Spark initiative help more students understand scientific concepts to solve problems in their own communities.

Thank you!

$1000 Grant from St. Margaret Mary

We are very excited this week to be awarded $1000 from the St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church Capital Campaign Outreach Fund.  They were thrilled to be a part of our initiative to spread STEM throughout the world.  This grant will fund a minimum of 22 new kits!  We are already getting requests for new places to impact.

In March a group of missionaries from St Margaret Mary took our 10th kit to Haiti.  High School students traveling to Haiti used it with the school children in the communities they visited.

 

Spark Kit delivered to Uganda

It was a new experience for us, as our kits have so far been transported by groups on their journey to communities in need.   This was our first experience with customs.  Each item had to be inventoried, weighed and documented on the customs form.  We watched the USPS tracking of the kit and awaited it’s arrival to the children.

Through the rainy season and internet troubles, we awaited news and pictures.  The teacher working with the children at that time has gone on to further his education, so we are still awaiting his feedback, but we were excited to finally get some pictures.  The kids look like they had fun.
