March 13th, 5-7pm @ Anna Head Alumnae Hall

The STC proudly presents its second annual showcase, Spark : A Student Tech Fair. This is an opportunity for an array of technology based clubs, student organizations, campus departments, and STF funded groups to showcase their projects.

Students will have a chance to learn about new developments and engage with innovation groups on campus and from our keynote speaker.
