The Lab

There is a place called Sparklelab where strange and wonderful things happen. Where everyday objects like Lego’s, sewing kits, motors and inflatable pools converge in unique and compelling ways.

At Sparklelab, we design new learning spaces, both physical and virtual, that support collaboration, peer-to-peer learning, inquiry, experimentation and youth-driven production.

We offer a number of hands-on workshops for kids, teens and adults, which range from media production, game design and development and toy making to soft circuits, e-textiles and physical computing. We also offer professional development workshops for K-12 teachers and administrators, and for faculty in institutions of higher education.

Sparklelab acts as a research and development space where we reimagine the way individuals and communities learn. If you would like to work with us, drop us a line: rosanna.lopez@sparklelab.ph

Sparklelab is a creative space where kids, teens and adults engage in activities of a multidisciplinary character: imagining, creating, reflecting and innovating.

Participants assume various roles and develop skills in areas of design, media, technology and the arts. They develop projects individually and collaboratively, within and across disciplines.

Sparklelab is a safe and inclusive space where all participants are encouraged and supported as they take on roles, assume identities, explore, experiment and collaborate in both the social and creative contexts.

Integral to this are the values of respect, kindness, mutual understanding and accepting and celebrating diversity.

Sparklelab is a connected space where ideas, models, practices, innovations and creations are informed and inspired by, are relevant and meaningful to, and are developed and shared with a wider community whether physical or virtual.
