Great opening day of #SparkLab @tcmupstate! Great to see so many kids and families having fun inventing.

Right now: Dr Lonnie Johnson, inventor of the Super Soaker (and many other technologies), is being interviewed by Dr Lisa Cook about #invention and his need to continue innovating.
Dr. Lonnie Johnson, inventor of the Super Soaker and much more, joins us on February 2 for the latest in our Innovative Lives program series.

The event is free but registration is required. See link in bio.
We're excited to be @tcmupstate this week for #SparkLab training! The newest member of the Spark!Lab National Network opens in February!
Thanks to all of our supporters and followers for a great 2016! We wish you all an inventive New Year! #bestnine2016
We love this game invented with the #SparkLab Inventive Creativity Invent the Greatest Board Game kit! Titled How to Write a Song, it was created as a Christmas gift for a guitar playing/song writing dad. The first song written as part of the game was called Mobile Device, all about dad's love of riding bikes. @creativityforkids
We launched a new set of activities in Draper #SparkLab today - all centered around inventing for the community. The activities look at different kinds of communities our visitors belong to, including the music community. In this activity, kids can try their hands at DJing, experiment with different technologies, and create their own beats!
Check out this cool game created with the Invent the Greatest Board Game #SparkLab Inventive Creativity Kit! Inspired by the inventors' family pet, it's called A Dog's Life. Players compete to see who can collect the most treats, capture the coveted purple bone, and finish first. Along the way, they get help (or face setbacks) with good and bad cards and take their chances with a spinner. We love the inventiveness! @creativityforkids
