PopTech Announces the Spark Youth Project


On Thursday, Andrew Zolli announced a new PopTech youth initiative called Spark. The project seeks to engage young people at the moment when they might “switch off and lose interest” in what science and technology can provide by offering them a vision of PopTech.

The project chronicles the work of five innovators whose work might inspire young people. The project is also supporting four high school students who are PopTech conference. They’ve been meeting speakers, blogging about their experiences, and otherwise having a great time.

Zolli shared one of the Spark videos on stage; the rest can be found at the project website.

Spark is presented in collaboration with Time Warner Cable and the Connect a Million Minds campaign. The project has also received support from the Noyce Foundation.
