Tech Immersion

Marrying technology 
and role models

How do you get kids to see a future they never dreamed of? 

By marrying technology, role models and hands-on learning in an immersive tech program, through partnerships with leading nonprofits and universities:

  • We’re teaching young minority men skills like coding, 3D design, robotics and more, with Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Hispanic serving institutions around the country.
  • We’re also teaching high school students entrepreneurship and business skills through programs at major universities, like Babson College.
  • We have a dynamic, experiential summer program for middle school girls at community colleges in rural areas, where they’ll learn coding, design thinking, social entrepreneurship, storytelling and augmented reality.

And we conduct up free interactive labs in select Verizon retail stores, where students can go hands-on with virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D design and more.
