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.
Coding and Entrepreneurship Program
Connect.DC is partnering with Clearly Innovative to provide education, mentorship and a positive learning environment that engages and teaches technical and entrepreneurial skills to students of all backgrounds. The program teaches students to brainstorm mobile app ideas and build mobile app prototypes. Students also learn to pitch and present their ideas to industry professionals. Students gain experience with basic programming through instructors and online coding tools and use their knowledge to create mobile solutions to community problems.
Please fill out an interest form and we will contact you once our new class schedule is finalized.
