Lily Born is our featured July inventor! At only 8 years old, Lily noticed that her grandfather, who has Parkinson's Disease, was knocking over his cup and spilling his drinks. She invented a new solution: the Kangaroo Cup, a three-legged mug that can't tip over.
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, Cameo!
Our small team is growing! We kicked off the month by welcoming Ella Chudik to SparkShop. Ella is an Industrial Engineering student at Northwestern University. Her summer projects are focused around optimizing our internal operations and reducing program & material costs.
