SPARK AFTER DARK
At the Meredith Learning Lab
Spark After Dark will be an evening of wonder, learning, and play to celebrate Thinkery’s impact in our community. It will help us give every child a chance to explore STEAM concepts and develop a lifelong love of learning, regardless of means.
Spark After Dark will offer a unique, after-hours museum experience as we celebrate our eighth “birthday” at the Meredith Learning Lab. Guests will enjoy live, interactive art and science demonstrations, maker activities, cocktails, and delicious bites from a variety of Austin eateries. There will also be a variety of opportunities to support the Open Door Initiative through donations and the purchase of tickets for our Grand Prize raffle.
Tuesday, December 7
7 pm—9 pm
Doors open at 6:45 pm
All guests will be required to show proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours of the event.
Rather than asking you to purchase a table or a ticket, we’re invititng all Thinkery donors who give at the $500 level and above*. All proceeds from this event will support Thinkery’s Open Door Initiative, which provides free and discounted admission to Thinkery and our inspirational play-based learning programs to children and families regardless of means.
*Spark After Dark invitations will be extended via email to any donor(s) who has given $500 or more since January 1, 2021 or who makes a qualifying donation before November 30, 2021.
Double the impact of your gift!
Our amazing Board of Directors has created a special matching fund to kick off this year’s Annual Giving campaign. Our Board will match all donations to the Open Door Initiative up to a total of $77,500!
Make a donation today and your gift will go twice as far in giving local children and families the chance to engage with STEAM education as soon—and as often—as they’re ready.
