SPARK Tech Programs

Instructor teaching two girls how to write computer code

**Due to Mayor Muriel Bowser's ongoing Stay at Home Order, COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and ongoing resrictions on public events, we will not be be holding any SPARK youth training classes this fiscal year. You can still submit an entry in our SPARK Interest Form.  We will contact you before our next classes begin. 

Connect.DC created SPARK to give District of Columbia students opportunities to build relevant skills in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). We hope our programs spark an interest in STEAM for children who have limited exposure to tech programs or want to learn more about potential tech careers in DC’s growing innovation economy. 

Here are the classes we are offering to K-12 students in DC.

  • Robotics: These courses teach students to use mechanical, electrical, and software engineering principles to design and operate multi-functional robots.
  • Programming: These courses teach students the foundations of computational thinking and block-based coding as well as design thinking, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to format code and design the main features of a web page or a mobile app.
  • Graphic Design:  Students will be able to build their own brand profile while learning design, graphic and branding skills.



Fill out our interest form and we will contact you when registration begins.
