Verizon Innovative Learning Grant

The Leyden Business Department was lucky enough to be accepted into the Verizon Innovative Learning Grant program.  This program gave our students the curriculum and resources to learn about the purpose and creation of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).  

Students then selected a local Leyden community partner to work with to solve a common business problem using AR and VR.  Students first competed internally against each other for the right to compete against other Chicago area schools participating in the grant.

After two years in the program, Leyden Business Department teams from East Leyden and West Leyden took first place in both Chicago Area competitions!  We are proud of our kids!
