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 mentors.

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

During first semester, students apply their learning to team projects from industry partners, and, in second semester, to internships with technical and creative firms. At least one year of successful technical coursework or equivalent experience is highly recommended.

Spark! Technology Solutions is located at 2024 Chesterfield Mall Drive.
