Black Business Month is Every Month
How AT&T small business customer, STEMuli, is powering an educational metaverse
Pop Quiz! What do home security systems, potato chips, automatic elevator doors, and Super Soaker water guns all have in common?
They were all created by Black innovators!
For decades, these inventions and many others, have made life a little easier (and sometimes more fun) for people around the world. They have made such an impact on society that you may have a hard time thinking about life without them. Can you imagine a world without potato chips? No, thank you.
Luckily, Black innovation isn’t an act of the past, clouded by decades of stagnation. Quite the contrary, there are Black changemakers making history every single day, and this Black Business Month, we’re bringing their contributions to the limelight.
Take Taylor Shead as an example. She is the owner of Dallas-based small business, STEMuli Studios, and the creator of the first educational metaverse to launch in the United States.
(Note: The metaverse is a virtual environment that deeply resembles everyday life. It immerses users into a new world where they can work, play, socialize and in STEMuli’s case – learn.)
Through this educational metaverse, students are able to play a 3D video game that takes them on a digital journey from their grade-level math and science classes to their ultimate career goals of being doctors, scientists, engineers, and more.
“If a student can see how math and science correlates to the progression of their dream job, we’ll see more women, minorities and kids of low socioeconomic persist through the education needed to get the job of their dreams,” Taylor said.
