XR is in its infancy, and this development platform is so new that it has really opened opportunities for women to emerge as leaders in this industry. XR Marin is seizing this unique opportunity to be the catalyst leveraging this open landscape to cultivate and catapult our female students to become the next generation of young leaders in XR.
XR Marin Super Girls
XR Super Girls is a program that encourages girls to pursue careers in STEAM through the engagement, education, and empowerment of girls and young women in entrepreneurship and immersive technology in XR: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and 360 Video.
XR Super Girls will let girls and young women discover their voice, their strengths, who they are as a leaders and how they can create change in the world through the awesome potential of XR. XR Marin provides a safe space for girls to realize their value, power, and wisdom through creativity, collaboration, self-reflection and content creation in XR.
