Student-centered

From the beginning, we’ve been working with youth & students to choose what they wanted to see in the space, and what they thought it should be called. To develop the name and brand, we worked with a team of South Eugene HS freshmen, and we couldn’t be happier with what they came up with.

“Through several weeks of brainstorming and development, we came up with the name ‘SparkLab’. We thought this conveyed our intention of the space which is to focus on the engineering aspect and to “spark” inspiration in the youth of our community. When designing our color palette, we thought that having bright colors, but also lighter, more subtle tones would help the space feel like somewhere people can create and think with limitless possibilities.”


Industry-informed

To prepare students for jobs after high school, we’ve been working with industry partners from the beginning to outfit SparkLab with industry-standard tools and equipment.
