Youth innovators from the David E. Glover Education and Technology Center on Thursday, Aug. 3 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. will demonstrate the Virtual Reality (VR) projects, mobile games and other Apps they have been creating and developing during this year’s Summer of Innovation.
Located in East Oakland, the Glover Center has continued to bridge the digital divide by offering free computer access and technology training to underserved East Bay Area communities for over 20 years.
“Many of these students would not have an opportunity to create games or experience Virtual Reality without the Center’s free summer program” says Director Paul Williams.
For the past seven weeks, more than 20 middle and high students have been in daily attendance at the David E. Glover Education and Technology Center learning to develop mobile games, apps and content for VR technology.
During the Gallery Walk event, students will showcase their projects and demonstrate what they have learned over the summer.
