William J. Larkin JR, Senator, 39th District, New York talks about his first-hand experience of VR Quest
We have seen first-hand the unique “VR Quest program”. VR Quest is a S.T.E.A.M. hands-on-learning and curriculum-based educational game design program that integrates fully immersive virtual reality non-violent game creation and engineering into the classroom. It is used in elementary, middle and junior high schools.
We funded the program this past year at Valley Central Middle School with great success. VR Quest is in many New York City, Yonkers, Fort Lauderdale and Miami public schools.
Adequate funding for organizations that provide cutting edge educational programs is a major priority of mine which will enhance educational and social opportunities for our children in our communities. Our children deserve a quality education and also a place to socialize and engage in activities.
I will continue to fight to make sure all students in your district receive a proper and safe education.
