On Thursday, we hosted the first ever Eduporium VR event and we're happy to report that it was incredibly successful! We had a crowd that was larger than expected at Café Escadrille in Burlington, MA and tons of immersive learning in the form of presentations and virtual exploration. Attendees included educators and industry enthusiasts made up of VR experts and novices who all shared the same passion for exploring this amazing emerging technology and we thank everyone who came out for making it possible, especially our featured speaker, Caitlin Krause!

The afternoon kicked off with Caitlin's presentation on 'VR: A Gamechanger Deeper than Games,' followed by Eduporium CEO, Rick Fredkin, discussing 'Next Steps with Virtual Reality,' and concluded with roundtable discussions and the opportunity to try viewers like the Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift. We even brought some of our other STEAM technologies along for the ride and they were quite a hit as well (even though the awesome VR tools definitely stole the show)!

We know of virtual reality's amazing potential in fortifying immersive STEM education experiences for students and were thrilled to learn how many educators feel the same way! Whether you want to try your hand at constructing an end-to-end VR curriculum or would simply like to add a viewer or two to your school's library of technologies, we can help! We've got you covered with the lowest prices possible (even lower than Amazon!) thanks to our direct relationships with manufacturers.
