About Us

It all started with a spark.

Spark began in 1967 promoting curiosity, innovation and collaboration, and encouraging children and youth to pursue higher education and careers in science and technology.

In 2011, Spark opened the doors to a reimagined science centre - a place that's, in fact, much more than a science centre. This is a place to explore and get hands-on with science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).

Spark's visual identity is an important component of the brand. Details on the use of the logo and other assets can be found in the online brand toolkit.

Mission
