Growing Partnership with Chicago Innovation

The Chicago Student Invention Convention is a statewide competition where K-8 students present original inventions to industry judges. Chicago Innovation provides training and curriculum for teachers, but we know that sometimes, bringing a new program to your school can be intimidating! That’s where we come in!

Last year, we worked with Chicago Innovation to make sure that students who complete SparkShop’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship pathway were eligible to participate in the CSIC. We brought 10 of our students to the Invention Convention at Illinois Institute of Technology on April 6th. Check out these all-stars!

This year, we're expanding our partnership to bring at least 25 students to compete with their brand new ideas! Keep an eye out for all of the brilliant inventions coming out of SparkShop students!
