  • The WKI team designed a SimpleVR experience that provides Washington High School’s freshmen girls information on the rich history, extra-curricular opportunities, and pathways to college and careers. Engagement in the research and designing process promoted the girls to conduct a critical examination of school-based issues including the lack of information and access to educational opportunities that can alter girls high school to college trajectory.
