TLX Provides Educational and Career Opportunities for Students in Underserved Communities

Empowering Economic Development

We believe that equipping students to gain high paying jobs and giving them career opportunities is what will empower students in low income communities to obtain jobs they think are out of their reach.

We believe in emerging tech education.

What We Do

We host educational workshops to teach students skills in emerging technology. We also hire these students as interns to continue to teach them skills and give them professional experience.

What our members say

In making a VR story I learned how to use the VR system by making a story and making it real. I enjoyed playing around with the different resources in VR to make a visual story. I liked using the different brushes and items in the VR too!

Andrea Popoca, Middle School Student

I would of never have thought I would get the chance to do this, and because of this, every time I come in this lab I do my best to use different brush strokes within Tilt Brush, or expand my knowledge through another VR Art program offered at TecnoLatinx XR Lab to see how else I can expand within this new digital world. 

Abraham Aragundi, VR Artist-in-Training

Thank you guys so much for the VR creator workshop! You definitely got a lot of us inspired to learn and do more in VR. Can't wait to learn more and grow my skills!
