Spark Space

A STEM center for kids and teens

Spark Space is a digital play space and homework help center for kids and teens at the Central Point Library with cutting edge resources in science, technology, engineering, math, and digital arts.

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood. 
–Fred Rogers

The first of its kind in the Rogue Valley, Spark Space provides free access to digital stations featuring music, video, digital arts, writing, coding, and robotics tools for K-12 students. Spark Space empowers young minds to find their spark and connect with their passions while encouraging play and providing nurturing relationships.

Coding

Our Computer Science tools engage young minds and help them advance from being computer users to creators. Get started coding in Scratch, Snap, Python, JavaScript, and more at Spark Space!

Robotics

Serious fun, but also serious learning in electronics, math, computational thinking, and more. When programming a robot, kids get instant feedback on whether their code is successful. Spark Space has robots for all ages and skill levels, from Blue-Bots and Makey Makey to The Finch Robot and Arduino Circuit Kits.

Creative Design

With access to Spark Space creative design tools—drawing tablets, Go-Pro style cameras, digital microphones, Hemingway Editor, and the full Adobe Creative Suite—the possibilities for creative expression (and learning) are limitless!

Homework Help

Spark Space offers free homework help from staff and volunteers, along with access to the Internet, computers, tablets, charging stations, color printing, and resources for independent learning. Leapfrog gaming/educational tablets are available for younger kids to use while older siblings work on homework.

Spark Space has something for all interests and skill levels, with support every step of the way!
