SPARK

SPARK is an acronym for Students Promoting Awareness of Research Knowledge. SPARK is a unique training opportunity for students to gain experience in written communications -- from hard news to public relations. Through SPARK, students acquire marketable skills and knowledge that they can take into the professional world

The SPARK program will turn 25 years old in the 2014-2015 academic year. Since its inception with two students, to the present where it now involves 10 participants per year, SPARK has developed a niche for making science understandable to the public and helping develop a culture that is supportive of research.

A SPARK story is based on research important to the lives of Canadians. It is written with a journalistic approach. And it is accurate, reviewed by researchers for accuracy before being released. For more information, email the SPARK program.
