A group of students work together on a hands-on project during the SPARK competition.

SPARK! Competition

Students will compete in high school and college teams to engage in creative design and team-building exercises in a fun, challenging contest.

SPARK! Creative Design Competition

High school students can have fun collaborating with other teens and Rose-Hulman students online on music-themed projects and other activities March 20 from 1-4 p.m.

The free design competition, called SPARK! has been organized by Rose-Hulman’s Building Undergraduate Diversity (Rose-BUD) program to increase high school students’ interests in engineering, regardless of their current background or their future plans. This year’s STEM-based competition is based around music to encourage interest in the arts in STEM (STEAM).

Teams with the best technical and creative designs, as determined by student judges, will win prizes provided by the corporate sponsors Halliburton, Collins Aerospace and ArcelorMittal, along with the Rose-BUD program.

Register here.

The Rose-BUD program is a networking and professional development organization focused on increasing women and underrepresented group inclusion, specifically in the areas of Computer Science and Software Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering. High school seniors with approved applications for Rose-Hulman enrollment are eligible for Rose-BUD scholarships. Find out more information at the Rose-BUD website.

Bring your brains, creativity and teamwork skills to the SPARK! Competition. In this hands-on event, you’ll learn, test your problem-solving ability, and make new friends in the process. There will be a guest speaker and lunch will be served.

This competition is sponsored by  Ford, Halliburton, Collins Aerospace, and Arcelor-Mittal.
