WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
2nd Grade Teacher
The S.P.A.R.K.S. team has presented four engaging lessons over Zoom to my class this year. They are diligent in their work, choosing Common Core Standards that align to our curriculum. They are also creative in their lesson development and always make it engaging for my students using online resources such as Peardeck and Kahoot. My students and I look forward to each time that they join us.
OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR & FOUNDER
Sahaana has been going to India ever since she was 1 years old. However, as she grew older, she began to examine the cyclical poverty in the region. Disheartened by the lack of education opportunities for slum children in India, Sahaana decided to turn to her own home state of Delaware and realize there too that STEM disparities exist. Sahaana has always been passionate about STEM equity and education equity. She works very hard to inculcate a passion in every student the S.P.A.R.K.S. Project works with! She can't wait to see this organization grow and work with even more bright kids! She encourages fellow community members to take action and assist in bridging the education gap in the K-5 population.
