This past weekend the Spark Corps team had the opportunity to be a part of the annual Atlanta Maker Faire. The event showcases inventive, creative, and resourceful projects of local people and organizations. The goal is to increase the visibility of local makers' unique products and ideas while strengthening their connection with each other and the community. This felt like the perfect venue to share our Flashlight line of design education products.

We loved getting to share our mission of design education with all of the bright young minds here in Atlanta. It's always fun to hear the innovative solutions to our game Createovate that enthusiastic young kids are able to come up with. It was also really great to see so many cool projects and unique ideas all together in one place. Thanks to everyone who came out, and we can’t wait until our next event!
