Spark’s mission is Innovation. All exhibits and programming are linked by the common thread of creative thinking and problem solving. Spark exhibits support the active child and curious adult with explorations in color, sound, light, emotion, music, balance, and dramatic play using established old-school practices as well as modern learning techniques. Spark activities challenge and develop children’s creativity, imagination, thinking skills, and social skills.

There are 7 zones of exhibits including wiggle and giggle, build, discover, play, sail, perform, and make and bake. Each area is full of exhibits that build off themes of creative problem solving, dramatic play, and creativity.
