Education Day at University of California, Irvine was kicked off with a high-level panel made up of area district officials, who informed us on new and local public school trends. Later in the morning, Mr. Randy Barth, CEO of THINK Together, one of the largest and fastest growing education-related nonprofits headquartered here in Orange County, addressed how they serve local at-risk youth thorough new innovative after school education programs.
Other components of the day highlighted Orange County’s largest public university, UCI, which is celebrating it’s 50 anniversary this year. New and emerging programs, such as the Gaming Department at UCI, including a presentation by Prof. Magda El Zarki, Director of Research Instruction in Virtual Environments and Computer Games, as well as a tour and presentation at the COVE by Matt Bailey, Chief Collaborative Strategist, at the UCI Applied Innovation center informing class members on emerging trends at this world-renowned research institution.
Thank you @TimBauer for sharing your perspective on education day.
