Urban TEC makes STEAM fun! 

​On the exVo platform, middle and high school students are transformed into avatars, taking control of their future as they explore this virtual event.  The students will enjoy moving around this immersive 3D platform to hear keynote speakers in main conference room, attend interactive technology sessions in the breakout rooms and listen to music on the rooftop with the DJ and where great door prizes will be given out.  

Middle and high school students will have the opportunity to explore  new technologies with the objective of continuing their interests at their local school or vocational centers.
