Why? Because they are great creators of Sparks (along with smart parents and generous mentors). Although Spark:Concept is itself young, we already have several great partner-schools, and many top educators sit on the Spark Advisory Councils. If you think your school would be a good match with Spark, ask your Dean’s or designer professor’s office to contact us, or just drop us a note with their contact info.
