Join MakerEd and SparkFun's Jeff Branson for a night of engaging discussion about making in the classroom at this SXSW Edu Meet Up on 3/5.
Spark the spirit of innovation in learners, and ignite great things! When students are free to invent and create, they begin to see technology as a means for solving real-world problems and taking their learning to the next level.
At SparkFun Education, we believe electronics is more than a hobby or a career path; it’s a creative medium for advancing teaching and learning. Our curriculum and resources are designed specifically as hands-on learning tools to help today’s students build skills for the creative and digital economy — critical thinking, collaboration, communication, curiosity, problem solving and invention.

What Educators Are Saying
Incorporating maker education is fun for my students and me! It naturally creates an atmosphere of collaboration and curiosity in my classroom where students and teachers alike are asking “What if we tried this?” or “Is there a way to do that?
An excellent resource for teachers that are passionate about using technology to provide real learning experiences for their students.
