Engineering & Science for New Americans

Sunset Spark helps new Americans of all ages use science and technology for fun, family, and the future. We offer free high quality classes for kids, adults and families in a wide variety of modern science and engineering subjects, including robotics, coding, neuroscience, and physical computing.

Serving Families in Sunset Park

We want every family attending a school in Sunset Park to have free access to the best creative technology classes in the city. To help make this happen, we work with most schools in the greater Sunset Park neighborhood, including P.S. 24, 516, 971, 503, 172, 131, 169, St. Agatha School, and Charles Dewey. You can also find us at the Sunset Park, Bush Terminal Park, the local Library, Atlas:DIY, the Muslim Community Center, Industry City, and other neighborhood centers.


In the 2015-2016 school year, over 1,400 students took part in our robotics, coding, and computer engineering programs. We taught multi-week programs in 23 general education classes, 13 ICT classes, 2 self-contained classes, and 4 dual language classes.
