Spark Mindset Cyber Security Program


PURPOSE


The Spark Mindset Cyber Security Program was developed to address the lack of opportunities for students of color within STEM fields such as cyber security and coding.  Lawrence Wagner, founder of Spark Mindset, believes in the power of experiential learning to help students develop the combination of technical skills and flexible mindsets that are necessary to tackle the challenges of the future.  Lawrence pitched the concept at the May 2017 Design Challenge and was awarded $10,000 to create a virtual reality education gaming platform to teach high school students from underserved communities cybersecurity, coding, and entrepreneurship.
