What We Do

SparkNC is supporting NC districts to pilot new interdistrict approaches to teaching and learning that will accelerate student progress on pathways to careers in high-tech fields like artificial intelligence and machine learning, software development, computer systems engineering, and cybersecurity.

SparkNC is a Whole New Way

to Do School

Why We Do It

Too few learners know about high-tech jobs that will dominate the future job market in North Carolina. Even fewer see pathways for themselves into these jobs.

"The staff at Spark are part of the team, industry partners are part of the team, students are part of the team, and school districts are part of the team. This is going to result in a huge network, exponentially expanding opportunities across the state."

- Brittany Branch, SparkLab Leader,

Mount Airy City Schools

SparkNC is a Whole New Way

to Do School

Learner-Centered

Students own their learning journeys. SparkNC lets students choose learning experiences to explore fields like artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, software development, data analytics, game development & design, design UX/UI, and computer systems engineering.

Industry-Relevant

Through partnerships with tech businesses, SparkNC helps students develop professional networks and build the durable skills employers value. Students gain a competitive edge by completing real-world projects that create strong portfolios of relevant work.

Competency-Based

Students move at the pace of learning. They can speed up, or slow down, based on their passions, their abilities, and their learning styles. SparkNC sets learning targets and empowers expert educators to advise and support students on personalized paths to success.
