VIRTUAL REALITY, WEARABLE TECH & ENTREPRENEURSHIP: What do the human body, music, and video games have in common? Wearable Technology. Students will have the opportunity to explore innovations from the realm of virtual reality and haptics while developing innovative ideas of their own. The world is constantly changing, especially in the midst of a pandemic, yet those influencing it the most are tech innovators of the world. Students will not only redefine themselves as innovators but future entrepreneurs with a plan. 

Each day, students will be exposed to the world of entrepreneurship, meet real innovators who have created businesses, and participate in hands-on lessons where they develop a wearable tech product, business plan, and report their learnings. A class kit will assist students with developing a prototype that will be shared at the end of the week. Students will participate in a week-long learning experience virtually as a large class with an added benefit of a small cohort for enhanced learning at scheduled times.
