WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

Who we are.

Hello my name is Natasha Skoberla. I am the owner of SparkYou who loves science and kids. I am a geek at heart but I also like playing beach volleyball & tennis. Since 2018 I teach STEM for grades K-12. I have worked in Hawaii public and private school systems including Aikahi, Ka’ohao, Waimanalo Elementary Schools, La Jardin Academy and tutor kids from all over the island. I hold BS degree in Civil Engineering, MS degrees in Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering. I have extensive background in drug and vaccine development subjects due to my past, long time employment at Merck, KGAA. My goal is to keep your kids safe, curios and entertained during their time away from school. I am fascinated with little brains and how they work. I love watching kids get curious about not only science but just the ordinary life. I believe social interactions with other kids and lots of time outside on a fresh air is the best we can offer our kids.

My adventure with science camps for children started during Covid lockdown when I extended SparkYou service for to public service employees facing limited options for childcare while working to ensure everyone’s safety. During that time I learned how important it is to keep students actively engaged not only through a virtual interfaces of a computer, but in person providing safe environment. This experience highlighted the importance of facilitating open communication, encouraging questions, and embracing mistakes as part of the learning process. The emphasis on providing a safe haven for hands-on experiments further underscored the value of  learning with peers for young minds.

Why Should Parents  Choose SparkYou Service?

What sets SparkYou science camps apart and positions us as the best Hawaii kids camps choice for young learners is our commitment to a personalized and immersive educational experience. Our uniqueness lies in maintaining a low student-to-teacher ratio, ensuring that each child receives individualized attention and guidance. Unlike other camps, we prioritize quality over quantity by having a higher number of teachers serving as counselors. This approach allows us to foster a supportive, safe for all and interactive learning environment, where curiosity is nurtured, questions are encouraged, mistakes are welcomed and young minds are free to explore the wonders of science. Our emphasis on hands-on experiments further distinguishes us, providing ample opportunities for students to propose and engage directly with scientific concepts, reinforcing their understanding through real-world applications. At SparkYou camps, we believe in the transformative power of education, kindness, safe environment and collaboration with your peers. We meet our students curiosity needs regardless of the level of complexity. It’s this dedication to colaborative excellence that makes SparkYou the unrivaled choice for an enriching and memorable science camp experience.

 

AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT CLASSES

elementary

LOWER ELEMENTARY Grades K-2

For our youngest scientists, we emphasize engagement and fun. Kids engage/study with a partner to cultivate team work. Each session consists of Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Engineering lessons with emphasis on our Hawaiian sourroundings. Students not only have fun but are challenged to independent thinking and proposing discovery subjects they want to learn about. We love to hear all innovative ideas as young Einsteins get their creative minds to work!

 UPPER ELEMENTARY Grades 3-6

This program is more advanced including experimental details. It is versatile in terms of settings. Students work in teams or independently depending on lesson. Given lessons teach concepts of elements, molecules, reactions, electricity and thermodynamics. We emphasize nurturing curiosity, creative thinking and encourage students to ask questions.
