Immersive Learning Platform Zoe Showcases Interactive Experiences Made By High School Students As Part Of First-Ever Comic-Con@Home
Comic-Con is all virtual this year for the first time in over 50 years, it runs online the same dates it was supposed to be live, July 23-26. The Zoe virtual showcase features projects created during summer programs starting this Comic-Con weekend in partnership with the SDJA, The Bayha Group and Downey Unified School District.
The Zoe showcase will be featuring more additional projects during the second week, including the exciting work led by Gaspare Lipari, Terry McCabe & Michele Giorlando at the Western Middle School during their Unbound Innovations Summer program.
At the center of Zoe’s virtual space in Comic Con’s FutureTechLive!, a pod also allows visitors to launch a free version of Zoe VR for the next 30 days on Oculus Rift. Now it’s your turn to be creative!
