Intro to Virtual Reality & Physical Tech

Technology is changing our world everyday. Understanding the impact of these changes and the track of this evolution, we must experience and acknowledge each item in question. New York City is an organic breeding ground for cross functional innovations that can be applied in different ways to solve problems in various industries. And the tech community in NYC is among the best in the world to bring these visions to life. While other New York tech tours bring you to today's movers and shakers, only one prepares you for tomorrow's world by showing you the innovations that will shape it. The Powering Tomorrow's Tech Tour of NYC is the key student groups need to accomplishing this task.

Our Powering Tomorrow's Tech programs include:

VIRTUAL REALITY

Learn about the origins and applications of Virtual Reality and how this technology is being used in our world today Following the lesson, students will have the opportunity to test the technology themselves through interactive activities.

HARDWARE

Visit a local tech, metal and crafts workspace, home to entrepreneurs, hobbyists and educators. Here, you’ll see how everyday tech hardware is crafted by hand. This program may include an interactive workshop activity involving circuits or metal.

How does it work?

Our STEM Education tours are based the core belief that students need to experience the most meaningful life lessons rather than learn them through textbooks or online articles. We accomplish this in the following ways:

CUSTOMIZATION
We actively build each program to suit the need and interests of each group.
ENGAGEMENT
We start with a basic framework and apply different applications of science and industry through site visits, explorations, activities and workshops to develop a well-rounded perspective.
LEADERSHIP
Unique to our student tours is our leadership module, which is incorporated into each aspect of the program. We help energize your group by applying frameworks that allow each student to question and discover what aspects of technology are they most interested in. We then work together as a group to help apply the lessons learned at each location to develop a “mini-roadmap” towards their potential career interest. This module takes place before and after each session and during the group’s transit time between locations aboard your vehicle (chartered bus or van preferred).
APPLICATION
Our hands-on, hybrid learning perspective allows each student the opportunity to not only experience science but learn how to apply what they learn to their own lives.
