Spark It Muncie is an innovative opportunity for students to participate in workshops to learn more about technology. The Tech-Spark Weekend was a jam-packed innovative weekend event for area middle schoolers. This weekend of learning ran from July 9-11, 2021, and kicked off with team-building exercises and introductions. During this three-day program, 24 middle school students learned the basics of app development, robotics, drone programming, and some introductory principles to business and marketing.
After a vigorous 3-day workshop at the Innovation Connector on programming and technology development, each of the eight teams presented a robot, app, and/or drone they invented! After learning and creating the students presented their ideas to their families in person and virtually for those that couldn’t attend.
Every student who completed the Tech-Spark Weekend was given a drone kit to take home! Now they can continue to keep practicing their programming skills! This event was a phenomenal show of innovation, education, skill, and creativity.
