As a Spark teacher, you get to pick any subject that interests you and teach a one-time class. Your class can be one hour to three hours, a hands-on seminar with 10 students to a lecture with 300 students. Spark is an entirely volunteer-run program that runs over one weekend in the Spring and attracts around 1,000 students from grades 7th through 8th.
