SPARK Saturdays

The Program

SPARK Saturdays is a program created by ECE Outreach that aims to introduce high school students to concepts within the field of electrical and computer engineering and expose them to engineering as a potential career choice. There are typically four labs, held on Carnegie Mellon's campus each semester, ranging from topics like the binary number system and boolean logic to programming in Python to building circuits with LEDs and that can be used as radios.

The labs assume no prior knowledge, and students are provided with assistance from Carnegie Mellon graduate and undergraduate students.
