On a recent morning at McClymonds High School in west Oakland, California, students soared through outer space, dissected frogs in a high-tech laboratory and toured the a Smithsonian American Art Museum exhibition up close — all without leaving their campus.
These students are part of the Tech Learning Lab, a partnership between Intel, HP and other tech companies. The custom-built mobile classroom is loaded with tech goodies, bringing access to advanced technology to students and teachers across the country.
“HP has always been focused on inventing and reinventing technology,” says Joanna Popper, HP’s global head of virtual reality for location-based entertainment. “We’re excited to put new technology in the hands of students around the country to expose them to what’s next.”
