Spark Academy Youth Programming

Started in 2016, LCC Spark Academy offers summer camps and some school-year offerings in various S.T.E.A.M. topics such as coding, 3D design and printing, gamemaking, digital music/design, and “maker” activities like robot building and internet-connected gadget-making.Spark Academy focuses on more than just digital skills, we also strive to develop skills in collaboration, communication, creative thinking, and problem-solving. Our programming is designed for children ages 10-15.

Spark School Year Saturdays

Our summer campers couldn’t get enough of the programming, and so we added a few sessions each term during school.
