Find Joy this Holiday Season with STEAM & the Spark Holiday Gift Guide

Fun, Curiosity, and Problem-solving for the Kids

Welcome to Spark! We are an immersive learning program and summer camp, brought to you by the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools. We love to connect kids with high-energy, hands-on opportunities to create, explore, and be inspired through science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM).

The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools created Spark because kids are deciding if they identify with these areas of interest as early as 3rd grade. By introducing STEAM early and often, in a way that feels like play, more kids are likely to pursue a future career in these fields.

Kids love what we do during the summer so we decided to carry that magic through to the holiday season. Our team has been scouring the city to bring parents and grandparents the first-annual, one-of-a-kind Spark Holiday Gift Guide for kids interested in STEAM. This free download is packed full of our favorite local gift ideas, everything from free experiences to high-end toys, for school-aged kids. Download the free gift guide at sparksummer.org/holiday.

If your kids love these gift ideas, they will love our summer learning camp too!

Learning opportunities, like Spark, are critical to the continued academic and personal development of kids all year round. 

We also understand that working parents want to make sure their kids are safe, engaged in learning, and having fun during those long summer days.

We offer a non-stop Spark Summer Learning camp with education and play for kids in grades K - 5, including:

  • Hands-on learning 
  • Convenient, flexible hours
  • Breakfast, lunch, and a snack
  • Transportation to and from field trips
  • Custom t-shirts, designed by the kids themselves
