I would love to show people some of the potential for multi-user holographic experiences and setting context about why it is important for educators to be actively exploring and empowering kids to create educational content for this kind of future. The combination of mixed reality that uses spatial computing, spatial anchors, real-time networking, open access initiatives, and shared real-time experiences across devices is going to be a game changer in education once the price points for the technology come down. For computer science classes, it doesn't matter if the price comes down because we want to be creating the creators for this content right now if we want kids who are ready to step into the open positions that will be available by the time today's freshmen become tomorrows graduates.

I would love to share some examples of the work, some recommendations for tools to get started, an overview of open access initiatives with a resource guide for places to go explore and download content, and some suggestions for balancing straight computer science with design/development/project management. I can explain a little about how our current project was created in partnership with the U.S. Navy using resources from the Smithsonian, KitBash3D (a professional modeling company out of Hollywood, and NASA for an authentic local non-profit called the Space Foundation. 

Here is a link to the page that I shared in the session that has tutorials, grant information, and some of a deeper dive on our creation of the app over the 2021-2022 school year:
