Adrian was a student in East Palo Alto, CA, who joined Spark to explore what’s possible for his future. Little did he know, he’d actually be predicting the future. His mentor Luis, a financial professional, came up with a creative way to connect Adrian’s love of sports with his interest in learning more about computers and technology. Adrian and Luis used Excel to forecast football statistics, then compared their predictions to real outcomes after the games were played. Adrian’s project taught him about the power of computers and mathematics — while allowing him and Luis to bond over a shared passion.
