Our Story

XR Marin was launched in 2018 as a county-wide educational resource for training students and adults in cutting-edge XR technologies: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Extended Reality and 360 Degree Video. As the newest addition to the Marinovation Learning Campus, a 12,000-square-foot complex that includes the South Novato Library, a MakerSpace, and a Media Studio located in Novato, XR Marin expands the model for collaboration between public schools, public libraries, and workforce development in Marin County.

XR Marin offers the entire community — from students to local industry--expanded opportunities for education and innovation in our new regional training center for XR. Our XR studio is a multi-use creative and professional space with 20 - VR Stations, a green screen studio and meeting/presentation area.

 

XR Marin was developed in partnership with Marin County Office of Education in partnership with the College of Marin, Novato Unified School District, Marin County Free Library and the Workforce Alliance of the North Bay.

XR Marin also was conceived as a startup enterprise organization piloting innovative programs and events to showcase XR technologies and expand new ways of learning, creating media, and understanding of how we experience virtual and physical environments.  XR Marin is primarily funded by grants from the Workforce Alliance of the North Bay and Marin County Free Libraries.

 

XR Marin is about emerging XR technologies, human interaction with technology , people, their ideas, and the things they make and innovate, and what we do is only possible thanks to the generosity of those who support us.

Our Impact

While XR Marin evolves in its innovative programming to keep at the forefront of education and technology, our impact continues to target a broad range of students and individuals seeking to develop their knowledge and workforce skills for future careers in virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality and 360 video. XR Marin continues to partner with industry leaders and academia to create engaging educational opportunities and programs for students and individuals in Marin. XR Marin is also helping to bridge the gap in gender and diversity with thoughtful programming to supports equity in education and career paths in XR.

Our Leadership

Alongside our XR Marin Partners and XR Marin Team, our XR Marin Leadership Council shares the organizations values and commitment to education, innovation, and community. XR Marin Leadership Council includes stakeholders from industry, schools, and the community who champion the mission and programs of XR Marin and do meaningful work to ensure our success.
