I've met a lot of amazing people along my journey. So far, Super Science Kids has been able to reach over 3,000 at risk kids. I admit, its hard work. But, every struggle is worth inspiring the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. I truly believe kids can do great things! Please help me continue my mission by donating at the following link. Any amount will greatly help the kids I serve. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the top of outer space!
I had such a blast teaching science at the 21CCLC After School Program today. We served around 50 kids. I was excited to hear, after a busy afternoon, that one of the kids I taught went home and actually taught his younger brother and sister some of the science he learned with me!!! So thankful for the opportunity to ignite sparks for science!!!
So much fun teaching science to kids at the Atlanta Mission My Sisters House Shelter! Thank you so much to Pebble Tossers for the opportunity to serve with you! Your support through the years means so much to me. Mr. Jack from GA Tech was amazing as always! I love it when kids leave and tell me on their way out, “I love science!”❤️♥️
I’m so excited to finally get a box of science kits ready to send to my friend Abby at Recycled Rainbows!!! Abby, get ready for a bunch of art supplies and crayons heading your way, too!!
Thank you for the opportunity to collaborate with you in serving the kids that live at Pine Ridge, Crow Creek, and Rosebud Indian Reservations. You are amazing! Recycled Rainbows
I met so many wonderful people today at the UNG CMS retreat. I was honored to be their guest speaker this year and I am very thankful for the amazing opportunity Dr. Bodri gave me! I was blown away at the standing ovation they gave me. Their enthusiasm for my efforts energizes me to continue fighting for this cause. I hope they will help me inspire the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers.
I finished teaching today at Hope Harbor Shelter in Nebraska. It was really fun! Mr. Dave Glomski from Edgerton Explorit Center came and did a bunch of fun bubble experiments! One of my favorite experiments that he did was where he put the kids in bubbles! It was so cool!! All the kids, my dad, and Mr. Dave did a little concert with their sound sandwiches. I loved it!
One girl said, “ Oh my gosh! I love science!” One of the moms told us,” God bless you,” when we were leaving. Everyone was so kind! Thank you to Mr. Glomski for helping me teach and thank you Hope Harbor Shelter for allowing me to come teach and empower your students!
I was also able to stop by to see the first Lincoln Monument at the Nebraska State Capitol Building.♥️
Now we’re off to Colorado! Edgerton Explorit Center Hope Harbor, Inc.
Our first stop was at Safe Haven Family Shelter in Nashville, TN. We had 4 science stations and Mr. Chris Earnhardt, from Adventure Science Center, had a bunch of experiments to show the kids. It was so much fun! There was one little boy that asked me so many great science questions! He said the stations were fun. I’m glad he had a good time! I want to thank Safe Haven Shelter for allowing me to serve their kids and Mr. Earnhardt for helping me teach kids. Safe Haven Family Shelter Adventure Science Center
This morning, I had a conference call with Mrs. Stacie James from UNG. She was so nice! We were talking about how we could partner and teach at-risk kids. She told me that she does a lot of fun science things with her 7 year old son. She told me about how they've done activities on campus where they change the abdomen color of ants! I am so excited that Mrs. Stacie is willing to help me!
Two years ago, SAFFT's Mr. and Mrs. Anderson met with me when my nonprofit was just an idea. Today, I had a meeting with Mr. Anderson to tell him everything I have accomplished so far and my willingness to continue efforts to help their amazing organization. I am so thankful for their support. I'm excited to continue serving their foster children.
I met with Dr. Bodri, the University of North Georgia's Dean of Science & Mathematics. He was so kind and patient. We discussed my science initiative idea to help science professionals be more engaged in the community by teaching at risk youth. I can't wait to get started!
I am honored to have been chosen as 1 of 2 State Honorees for Georgia to receive the 2018 Prudential Spirit of Community Award! I am so excited to go to Washington D.C. to meet other inspiring kids!!

I had a wonderful day teaching the kids science at Presencia! We taught them how to make polymer snow and partnered with GotSmiles? They helped the kids decorate cookies and make wreath ornament crafts. We also delivered a full truck load of gifts that generous donors gave to their sponsored students. A BIG thank you to FBC Dunamis and friends for your blessings and help providing a wonderful Christmas for these students. Thank you Presencia for all you do and allowing us to serve your kids!

I had fun balancing chemical reactions today in my science lab. I could do pages of this stuff! I ❤️chemistry! Maybe I should make this a science station for the kids I serve. What do you guys think?
I've had so much fun serving on the Teen Advisory Board this year, under the direction of Ms. Kayla! I can't wait to start up again in January! Serving my community is one of the things I love to do! I'm so thankful that Forsyth County Public Libraries provides opportunities for kids to serve their communities in a positive way. Thank you FCPL! Forsyth County Public Library
This morning we had the opportunity to help pack snack bags for Feed Forsyth Children. It's such a great mission that provides food to needy children during the holidays. We were honored to meet Mrs. Teresa Banker. She started Feed Forsyth Children and is a wonderful gift to many.
SSK brought science fun to children of immigrants. Presencia is an amazing organization! Super Science Kids provided six science stations for the kids to rotate through: Optical Illusion, Dinosaurs/Fossils, Polymers, Bubble Science, Cause&Effect, and Sound Sandwiches! We are so thankful for the opportunity and for our amazing volunteers! One little girl said, "Oh man, why does this good day have to end!" We had a blast, too!!💚
Presencia Got Smiles?
Studying our route for our cross-country science tour. So excited! I can't wait to visit all of the children's shelters and foster organizations!! I'm planning to visit 14. I can't wait!!
Dear Mr. Spangler,
I just want to thank you for everything you do for kids. Your science experiment ideas have helped me SO much with providing science fun to at-risk kids. Recently, I did an event for low-income housing. I taught bubble science using your method of cutting the pipettes, using glycerine in the bubble mixture, and using hand gloves. The kids LOVED it and I had SO much fun teaching it! Here's a picture of me teaching. And your slime goo kit has helped me ...provide "make your own slime" stations at shelters, refugee afterschool programs, and foster events!! Who doesn't love slime?
Oh and my mom and I watched your STEM camp live FB post, because we hope to do a stem camp next summer for foster kids, and I think you're so right...I need to let all the kids I meet know that there's a job out their waiting just for them! I hope to inspire the next scientists, too.
So, thank you again for everything you do and for helping me empower kids!!
I had a late night packing Summer Science Snack backpacks for the foster kids. These will have our fun Causality kit in them. I hope the kids enjoy them.
