Add up all the times you selected A, B, C or D as an answer and use the table below to find out what Reading Sparks activities you might enjoy.

Mostly A?

You are a collaborator, open minded and organised. You can turn your hand to any of the Reading Sparks activities, but you may thrive choosing STEM themes and selecting accompanying activities as these give you an opportunity to plan the bigger pictire, but also decide some of the detail that is really going to give your activities the edge.

Mostly B?

You are curious, imaginative and committed. You have a natural ability to find out new information and make sound decisions on what is presented to you. You can see connections between two things, sometimes spotting things that others may have missed. It would be great for you to try organising and planning events as you will be able to reflect on other’s opinions and figure out a sound way forward.

Mostly C?

You are creative, logical and a great communicator. You have a flair for bringing things to life with your ideas and presentation style. You would be fantastic at presenting your ideas and promoting activities as you will be able to think creatively around the themes and come up with some great ways to engage your audience with it.

Mostly D?

You are a communicator, resilient and patient. You can take ideas and information and present it to any audience as you understand that you have to try different ways of communicating depending on who you are talking to. You should think about presenting activities to families as you get a buzz out of interacting with other people.
