  • SparkNC is a new way to do school. Each learner is in a lead role, following their interests, building the skills they want to learn, and charting their own path toward high-tech careers of their choice, all while earning high-school credit. Through the CCS SparkLab, every high school student has access to an inter-district network of teachers and tech industry partners to guide and shape their learning. To earn credit, learners will first complete the SparkNC Orientation Unit, then choose and complete eight high-tech Units, and pull it all together with a final capstone project. Learners have the opportunity to complete SparkNC Units in three different ways: live, on-demand, and experiential.


    Live Units are designed and led by SparkLab Leaders and industry experts in a live format either in-person or virtually in SparkLabs. 

    On-Demand Units on the SparkNC platform are available for learners to choose and complete at any time that works for them.

    Experiential Units are live events and programs such as student conferences and summits, hack-a-thons, teamships, job shadowing and hands-on learning opportunities.
