Thanks to a grant from the Roseville Rotary and curriculum development from Central Park School and the district, the SPARK Lab will open at Central Park Elementary this fall. The unique learning lab will enable the school to incorporate science, technology, engineering, art, and math (often called STEAM) into its entire curriculum and to transform learning.
The Roseville Rotary designated $25,000 a year for three years to help the school realize its vision for students. The Rotary funds will outfit the lab with high-tech equipment and tools.
SPARK is an inquiry lab and will have the resources ready for students to be explorers and innovators. Students will have computers, 3-D printers, and tools needed to integrate reading, math, writing, science and problem solving in their learning.
