At the World Championship last month, we met many teams and created tons of new friendships; with the collaboration of 4 of these FRC teams, our team is thrilled to announce that we have sent out 8 new Spark Kits!
- 5 kits to Turkey with 6409 Odrinias
- 1 kit to Dominican Republic with 409 Team DRIFT
- 1 kit to Chile with 2576 Chilean Heart
- 1 kit to Israel with 1937 Elysium
We received a very positive response from Odrinias after they tried out the Spark Kits with children in Turkish refugee camps. We thank each one of the teams sharing Spark in their country and look forward to learning about the kit’s impact on your communities.
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.
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.
