Established in Spring 2021, Spark is a community of student developers and designers at the University of Pennsylvania that builds both creative and client projects.
Spark is open to all experience levels, including both beginner and more experienced developers & designers. Beginners learn foundational design and development through our Blue Branch before diving into projects. Outside of our bootcamp curriculum, we host workshops and events on a variety of creative topics.
Our members take ownership of their learning and gain hands-on experience by working with other designers and developers on a creative project each semester. In addition to working with our tech stack, our Red members gain experience working with real-world clients and non-profits.
Community is at the center of what we do and how we work. In addition to lots of cross-team collaboration, project teams work closely together throughout the entire development process. Whether it be club-wide work sessions, retreat, and our various other social events, we take pride in how our organization brings people together!
