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, we want you to be creative. Explore virtual reality and robotics, personalized learning and cyber security. Discover the ways technology can be used for interactive
learning and much, much more.
