Can’t bring SPARK to you? Come to SPARK!
Each spring and summer, SPARK conducts 2 day “Institutes” for each program in beautiful San Diego that are similar to the SPARK Premium Program -- yet offer an even richer, in-depth SPARK experience.
Top program presenters and authors lead the interactive sessions, a professional family is created, a terrific time is had by all, and attendees leave inspired and motivated to take their programs to the next level.
Space is limited to the first 40 registrants!
* (must have prior SPARK training to attend K-6 Level 2 Institute)
** Elementary focus day one, Secondary focus day two. Instructors may attend one or both days. This Institute is NOT for university students— it is for their teachers.
SPARK institutes are not “Train the Trainer” programs. Completing both Institute days earns the title “SPARK Certified Instructor”, which is different than a "SPARK Certified Trainer". A Trainer is licensed to conduct SPARK workshops for colleagues in their school, district or community. If you ARE interested in becoming a SPARK Certified Trainer, there is a program for that. Contact SPARK for more information on their TT model.
To ensure the rights and privacy of our attendees, no photography or videotaping is allowed during SPARK Institute sessions.
Our new Grant Finder Tool will help you find grants specific to your state and type of program. New grants updated daily!
