Nihal Gill, founder of Project Spark, is excited to open in-person STEM and Robotic classes once again for fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-graders at the Ceres Community Center.
Project Spark had resumed classes virtually during COVID-19 and is looking forward to providing opportunities to youngsters in person to experience hands-on STEM-based activities and education. The monthly class will include guest speakers from engineering and robotics industries along with hands-on projects that students will participate in.
The goal of Project Spark is to help kids in Ceres develop hands-on skills within STEM, an area of study often overlooked in Valley communities yet highly valued in urban areas like the Bay area. Project Spark will continue to provide STEM education to children with a focus on Robotics and is also excited to add Entrepreneurial Design Thinking to their classes, where students will focus on skills needed to bring their creativity, imagination, and entrepreneurial ideas to the next level.
Families may sign up for the classes at the Ceres Community Center, 2701 Fourth Street, or on the city’s website at www.ci.ceres.ca.us and click on the Recreation icon. Classes will be held 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, Sept. 25, Oct. 30, and Nov. 20 and the class for December is to be determined.
