Social Impact

SparkFun’s Department of Education has been influential in our mission to get embedded electronics in the hands of everyone. From a national tour in 2013, which took our team across the US teaching workshops to educators and students alike, to local Maker Faires, where our team interacted with people one-on-one, our Department of Education is shaping future discussions about electronics!
