What is Project sparc?
SPARC stands for SPAce Research Center and was founded in 1962 by a partnership between NASA and the School District of Philadelphia during the height of the Cold War in an effort to get high school students interested in the sciences. In the early days of Project SPARC student astronauts completed simulated space missions in a donated Apollo Capsule over the course of several days.
