Kid Spark's easy-to-use curriculum can be taught in any classroom, by any teacher

The curriculum moves progressively through four overarching learning phases:

Elementary School Program (PK-5)

Foundational Fluencies

Educators mentor students to develop foundational capacities prerequisite to all STEM learning, like spatial reasoning, problem-solving, and symbolization.


STEM Fundamentals

Students begin exploring applied mathematics, mechanical engineering, and robotics. They gain confidence in their ability to use technology to design solutions to problems.

Middle School Program (6-8)

Applications in Design & Engineering

Students explore challenging STEM concepts from their everyday world, authoring with technology to solve problems and create new solutions.


Systems of Technology

Students use multiple technologies to create system solutions, including mechanical and structural engineering, computer-aided design and 3D printing, and programmable robotics.

 

Resources include

Teacher lesson plans • Curriculum packets • Student workbooks • Instructional videos • Digital 3D parts library • Drag & drop coding software • Text-based coding software
