DOWNERS GROVE – SparkTruck, an "educational build-mobile," will stop in Downers Grove this Sunday to host two free hands-on workshops.
SparkTruck is a project started by Stanford University students who were curious about education and technology.
The SparkTruck is traveling around the country presenting workshops to kids.
To register your child, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Organizers said Tuesday that few spots remained.
The SparkTruck crew will present two workshops: "Vibrobots" for children aged 8-12 and a Lego robotics session for children aged 12-15.
Participants can sign up to attend one of the workshops for free.
