Kai XR x Rotary Club of Houston x 8 Million Stories

We are thrilled to share our recent collaboration with 8 Million Stories on their Sons of Promise initiative, sponsored by The Rotary Club of Houston, Texas. Our shared goal was to enhance digital literacy and provide students with hands-on opportunities to explore emerging technologies and career pathways.

The world is changing rapidly, and our education system must keep up with the pace of innovation. Incorporating Metaverse programming into your curriculum is an excellent way to prepare students for the future and equip them with the 21st-century learning skills they need to succeed.

We designed our custom curriculum to demystify the Metaverse, 360° videos, and AR & VR technologies to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of these technologies. Through hands-on projects, students also gain various skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, and collaboration.

During the program, students aged 9-14 years old, 97% of whom were black or brown, explored and practiced the application of Metaverse technologies and career pathways with Kai XR's CREATE-a-thon. This hands-on approach allowed students to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world scenarios, giving them a deeper understanding of how professionals utilize emerging technology in various industries.

Program Outcomes

We are proud to report that 89% of students believe the program helped them learn more about the Metaverse, 360° videos, AR & VR, while 77% felt proud about what they could create using these technologies.

We are incredibly grateful to the Rotary Club of Houston, TX, for sponsoring our partnership with  8 Million Stories and for the Rotary volunteers in providing onsite classroom support. Their support has enabled us to provide students with hands-on opportunities to explore emerging technologies and career pathways through our Kai XR programming.

We appreciate the Rotary’s commitment to enhancing digital literacy and providing students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in future jobs. Thanks to their support, we have made a meaningful impact on student’s lives and helped prepare them for the future. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Rotary Club of Houston, TX, and working together to empower students and enhance learning experiences.
