For Parents

Can I purchase eSpark for my child to use at home?

Currently we only work directly with schools and school districts, but we would love for you to share information about eSpark with your child’s school administrators to see if our program could be a good fit for students in your community. If your child already uses eSpark at school, speak with a teacher to coordinate using eSpark at home.
