Sparks Space: March Edition


We are excited to announce the next edition of the Sparks Space: Exploring 4-H the ROBOT way, is scheduled for March 9th at 10 am. We also wanted to share the results of the survey that you may have taken at the end of the February Sparks Space. We thank you for your feedback as it is very helpful in helping us to design the future Sparks Spaces and address any needs that folks may have.


Try out 4-H the robot way!

Our next Sparks Space, co-sponsored by the STEM Program

Work Team is all about robotics STEM programs. Hear stories of how youth thrive in local 4-H programs. Learn about how to get connected to people, activities, and equipment that can kickstart or help your robotics program grow. Try out coding a Hummingbird robot. Bring your robot to work by designing and building your own Junk Drawer Robot using found materials from your recycling bin and bringing it to the Sparks Space.


You may register for the session through the link below. We look forward to seeing you all!

When: Mar 9, 2022, 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

February Sparks Space Survey Result Summary Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the Sparks Space through our Qualtrics survey – we appreciated your time and thoughtful responses, particularly on how you are weaving the Thriving Model into your own work, and nurturing the spaces that promote Sparks for young people.

Highlights:

  • Most agree that the gathering creates enough balance of content along with the opportunity for smaller group connections and networking.

  • Receiving an individual calendar invite for each Sparks Space is the easiest way to keep this event clear on everyone’s schedule.

  • Ideas for upcoming Spark’s Space gatherings:

  • Ready to go program ideas with little start- up costs

  • Tools, Tips, and Tricks for successful hand on experiences, programs and activities for youth

  • Staff and Volunteer training

  • Additional examples for building Sparks within our 4-H program opportunities
