Ignite Sparky Design Challenge

Part 1 - Kick Off Session

Part 2 - Informal Team Check-in

Part 3 - Pitch Contest and Awards

The Ignite Sparky Design Challenge aims to level-up Sparky, the most loved and feared mascot in the Pac-12, if not the entire NCAA, by developing the most awe-inspiring and innovative mascot powers imaginable. During social-distancing, Sparky wants to hunker down and essentially become a technologically-enhanced super hero in time for the Fall 2021 school sports season. He also wants to leverage ASU’s #1 in Innovation status to become the most innovative college mascot in the world. To do so, Sparky knows he must assemble a multi-disciplinary team of the most creative, technologically-adept, charismatic, and purpose-driven ASU students to help him achieve his goals. Are you in?
