Our Atlantic Regional Office’s Makers Making Change team has partnered with George Street Middle School in Fredericton as part of their SPARK program (Students Participating in Arts, Recreation and Knowledge).

Over four weeks, 10 students participated in two-hour weekly sessions. They learned to solder, built our Round Flexure switch, and then switch adapted toys which were donated to Stan Cassidy Rehabilitation Centre.

This is an ongoing partnership, and we’re looking forward to the next sessions!
