Is your child ready for the future?  Given the pace of technological change, our children’s futures will be dramatically different than life today.  How can we best prepare our children?  What skills will be most valuable?


To thrive in an unknown future, your child will need to be able to think creatively, work collaboratively, and respond to setbacks resiliently. Together, these skills form a FUTURE-PROOF MIND that will allow your child to reach their greatest potential.

At Neuron Garage, (formerly Summer Spark), Austin’s award winning STEM Day Camp, we work with forward-thinking, thoughtful parents and their children. Children come to Neuron Garage for week-long summer sessions — some come for just a week, some stay for the whole summer. Each week features a different hands-on building challenge.

Children build with heaps of recycled materials in search of solutions. Along the way, they learn strategies and tools to stay engaged in the challenge, giving them more practice thinking creatively and collaborating with peers. They develop resilience as they process minor setbacks and continue to strive for solutions.

We know how to make this process fun! We’ve created a framework that your child will be able to understand and apply after just one week. Each week is another fun challenge, and another opportunity for your child to practice our method and develop their FUTURE-PROOF MIND.

We are so confident that your child will enjoy the experience that we offer our Garage Guarantee – If your child does not want to come back for a 2nd week, the first week is free. Seriously.

We don’t want your child to miss out on Neuron Garage, so go ahead and sign up today and let us know if your plans change. You can reserve your week with just a $50 deposit and pay the balance any time before summer starts. You can change weeks at any time, space permitting. If you need to cancel, let us know by the end of May to receive a full refund. For cancellations after the end of May, you will receive credit that you can use this summer or the following summer.
