Explore education entrepreneurship in



Spark is an immersive, 10-week program hosted by HackCville for students interested in the intersection of education and entrepreneurship, and how we can innovate toward the future of education. You'll hear from local and national changemakers, participate in interactive design thinking workshops, and work on real projects with local community partners to put what you learn into practice. Spark guides students in thinking critically about and solving problems in education. Graduates of Spark have a comprehensive understanding of design thinking and are prepared for careers as innovative educators, education entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, and education policymakers.

Discuss the biggest education questions in the

Education Forum


The Education Forum is a semester-long series of dialogues on education. The concept is simple: we want to bring together students and community members who care about education and spark a conversation from there. In this sense, the Forum goes “back to the basics.”  Ultimately, we hope that participants will leave with better understandings of their answers to the question: what is the purpose of education and how do we carry out that purpose? Our goal is not to instruct but to stimulate, and we think that bringing together a diverse set of people to talk about diverse aspects of education is the best way of doing so.
