We are excited to announce that one of our student entrepreneurs, Markus Proctor, is doing some BIG things.
EduPal, one of the winners of the Cangialosi Business Innovation Competition in the Spring of 2014, has evolved in recent months from their focus on students’ time management and study habits to improving how K - 12 students learn with virtual reality. EduPal leverages Google Cardboard to transform the smartphones that students bring to class everyday into a virtual reality headset allowing them to travel anywhere in the world instantly.
"Customized field trips with built in assessments, EduPal has become the resource I never knew I needed for my students. This platform meets the needs of educators, students, and parents alike with the ability to differentiate lesson plans for a low cost point. The educational tools provided by EduPal should be available in all classrooms"
-Ms. White, Science and Technology Instructional Program Coordinator at Charles Herbert Flowers High School.
In recent weeks, EduPal has exploded and is now balancing major opportunities from two major Universities; teachers like Ms. White in Prince George's County; and even the Federal Government. They have also been hand selected to be in a group of 23 companies from the region to demo during Baltimore Innovation Week at the unveiling of Kevin Plank's (CEO of Under Armour) new innovation hub, City Garage.
"This group represents some of the best and brightest companies from the region. Helping companies like these grow is central to making Baltimore a global destination for entrepreneurship."
-Jen Meyer, CEO of Betamore
Congratulations Markus and the entire EduPal team! We cannot wait to hear what EduPal does next!
