About this Event

CCI Spark – Event Overview

We would like to introduce you to CCI Spark, an innovative and captivating storytelling series for the CCI community. During each Spark event, Drexel CCI students present an interesting component of their student/career/life journeys and how the topic intersects with technology.

Students are invited to present on topics ranging from: their background, personal or professional interests, journey to arriving at CCI, co-op and conference experiences, side projects and research, current events, or experiences overcoming a challenge. Presentations will be engaging, interactive, prioritize informing the audience about an experience or subject, and highlight the topic’s connection to technology. Spark events will be held every other week from 12:30-1:30pm in CCI's 10th floor lobby. Each event will include two presentations. The entire Drexel CCI community is welcome to attend.
