Technology Solutions

For independent juniors and seniors who want to solve problems with digital technologies, Spark! Technology Solutions is a course that provides time, resources, and professional connections.

Unlike a typical class, students determine what skills they focus on and deeply learn. Students may pursue passions in app development, cybersecurity, web development, data analytics, game design, geospatial technologies and more.

During first semester, students apply their learning to team projects sponsored by industry partners, and, in second semester, to micro-internships with local and remote businesses. At least one year of successful technical coursework or equivalent experience is highly recommended.

Spark! Technology Solutions is located at 670 Mason Ridge Center, Suite 100, St. Louis, 63141 and led by Drew McAllister, Program Director.
