The Schools Participate in App Resources and Knowledge (SPARK) App League is a partnership with the College of Technology and Innovation, Intel and the town of Gilbert. It is the first program of its kind in Arizona and, perhaps, in the nation. Its goal is to encourage and provide opportunities for Arizona’s high school students to develop mobile applications that incorporate science, technology, engineering and/or math (STEM). Students work with Gilbert data sets to build apps that help residents, visitors and businesses.
