SPARK App League
Did you know that by 2020 it is projected that there will be one million more computer science jobs than there are students? According to Code.org, nine out of ten schools do not offer computer programming classes. Here, in Gilbert, we’re trying to help fill this gap with a mobile application development competition for high school students, SPARK App League.
Watch and learn how Gilbert, along with Arizona State University and Google, are teaching kids the basics of mobile application development from design to code implementation with the ultimate goal of piquing student interest in computer science before they choose their area of study.
