Spark! 2019

November 5 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Event Details

Support Museum of Discovery at Spark!

“Spark! Igniting a Passion for Science, Technology and Math” is the Museum of Discovery’s signature fundraising event. Our interactive museum is the perfect venue for energizing our guests about the same things that energize our 150,000-plus annual visitors every day. Spark! is a unique event – no sit-down dinner, no speeches, just a lot of hands-on science, great food and drinks and small-but-premium live and silent auctions. At Spark! we recognize “Spark! Stars,” Arkansans who have had successful careers in fields that required the intensive study of science, technology and math. The event also features “Spark! Attractions,” led by companies and individuals who demonstrate their expertise in science- and technology-related activities. All proceeds directly support the Museum of Discovery’s statewide educational programs.
