SPARKing STEAM Logo with student host and artist

Nearly 700 Prince William County Public School students participated in the first Virtual SPARKing STEAM event, intended to provide hope and introduce students to career opportunities in the area of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. The Introduce a Girl to STEAM event, originally scheduled for April 18 at Benton Middle School, was rescheduled due to the global pandemic.

This event was sponsored by SPARK, the education foundation for PWCS, and Walmart, and featured guest speakers Dr. Steve Walts, Superintendent of Schools, Patrick "Patcasso" Hunter, a live performance painter, Karlie Kloss, American supermodel and entrepreneur, DJ Steady Rock, and Lena Gooden, a student at Osbourn Park High School. The event also provided several prize giveaways for students.
