Our innovation space is called SPARQ (Solving Problems, Asking Real-world Questions). We will begin our session with an overview video that the students created to introduce the participants to SPARQ. Our SPARQ Coordinator and Director of Technology will then share a bit about the purpose of the space and how it is being used. We have 8th grade students who have been in an elective class all year in SPARQ. Those students will each present on the projects that they have created. We will invite the adults to mingle with the students briefly to engage more deeply in a project that interests them. Then we will come back together to do a Skype virtual tour of our space. Finally, the SPARQ coordinator and the Director of Technology will share our reflections of the year in SPARQ and the impact this type of environment can have on innovation and entrepreneurship.
