PCHS has built one of the premiere public school makerspaces in California by tackling the challenges of resource allocation, curriculum innovation, and UC admission requirements. We are a makerspace with a mission: to offer underrepresented students increased access to STEM career and college pathways and our program won the 2016 CTE Makeover Challenge from the US Dept. of Education. This year we’ve emphasized emergent curriculum and student designed assessment, while developing new courses that blend Career Tech Education subjects with core academics, and launching a new STEAM Pod for our incoming 9th grade students. Our presentation will detail the rapid growth of our STEAM Shop Games and VR program. Our students attend IndieCade, VRLA and SIGGRAPH. They work with 360 cameras, low cost tools, high-end platforms and playtest new applications, like Mindshow. We embrace VR for storytelling, engagement, joy, learning and empathy. We are preparing our public high school students to have a seat at the table as the industry grows across the region and economy.
