*Interactive Playground

Yes. You read that right.
Playgrounds rule. They’re where we learned to push our boundaries and follow our curiosities. They’re where we used our imagination to bring whole worlds to life.

At DisruptED’s interactive playground, you can find that feeling again. We want you to be creative. Try on some wearable technology. Explore coding and virtual reality. Check out some robotics. Discover the ways technology can be used for interactive learning.

Come play with us. You might learn something new.
