Discovery Events (called Discovery Day or Discovery Night in different regions) are opportunities for schools, students, parents, mentors and companies to celebrate possibilities and bright futures.  Each Spark student is paired in a workplace-based mentorship with a mentor in a career field of interest.  Together, the student and mentor develop a project related to a profession.  Students build websites, create videos, develop budgets and more!  Discovery Events bring together all Spark students throughout each Spark region, as well as their parents, mentors, teachers and the community to share their final projects.
