We work to inspire the next generation of engineers and raise STEM literacy.

The Spark! PK-12 Engineering Education Outreach office provides engineering education programming to pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (PK-12) students and families as well as professional development opportunities to teachers, counselors, and school administrators. Look for us at STEM events across the Brazos Valley and Texas.

Join us at summer camps or one of our other exciting STEM programs created for students, families and communities throughout the year.

Earn professional development credit, learn about STEM and find resources to take back into your school and classroom.

Participate in PK-12 engineering education outreach programs on campus or contact us to get assistance in creating your own.

For more information on these programs and how to partner with us, please visit our Spark! Pre-K-12 outreach webpage or contact:
