The Spark of Innovation Program supports Dwight students (grades k-12) with monetary grants for innovative and creative projects that demonstrate an entrepreneurial spirit, and have real-world applications.
As one third of students today will create their own jobs, and top universities are already investing in bringing novel student work to market, Dwight is paving the way for younger students to take innovation beyond the classroom.
The Spark Tank
As part of the Spark of Innovation Program, the Dwight School Foundation created Spark Tank, a think tank designed to nurture innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership in Dwight's community. At the Spark Tank events, which take place four times per year, students present their ideas for feedback, guidance, and tough questions from a panel of the Foundation's Spark Tank Committee members -- all industry experts and entrepreneurs in the Dwight community.
