SparkTruck's first summer trip was 4 months long, and came on the heels of a successful Kickstarter campaign, and several invites from schools across America.

The truck is outfitted with 3D printers, a laser cutter, and tons of post-its. Perfect for sparking creativity in young minds.

We stopped at libraries, schools, museums, and a TV show or two, spreading prototyping mindsets wherever we went.

As the inaugural summer wound down, we wanted to see SparkTruck's work continue, so we used our remaining funds to create a new d.school program, and trained the next summer's crew. The truck is still in use, and now at SMU where it continues to run maker education workshops.
