At SparkFun Education, we believe that connecting learners with the spirit of innovation will lead to a generation of thinkers who can shape the world with powerful ideas and solutions and solve real-world problems with technology. We view electronics as more than a hobby or a career path, but as 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 learn skills for the creative and digital economy–critical thinking, collaboration, communication, curiosity, problem solving, and invention.
