You've probably already heard of Cameo. They're the developers of a custom-celebrity-shoutout app, one of the fastest growing start-ups in Chicago, AND SparkShop's newest supporters! Our partnership with them will cover costs for a school to receive SparkShop in all of their 4th and 5th grade classrooms.
Thanks to Cameo, students will get to take part in SparkShop’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship course, where they will build skills in group brainstorming and problem solving and develop new communication techniques through sketching and prototyping.
Students will also get the chance to visit Cameo’s beautiful office in the West Loop for a field trip where they will pitch their original inventions and meet Cameo’s employees. Chicago has a strong (and growing) tech industry, we are grateful to partner with Cameo to show our students how many exciting opportunities exist for them right here at home!
