Crooms Academy TechFest 2013

TeachLivETM technology staff visited Crooms Academy of Information Technology, a magnet high school in Sanford, Florida, to demonstrate TeachLivETM  to students interested in technology-related careers. We shared a space at the TechFest with the National Center for Simulation hosted by the director, Hank Okraski. The students were very excited to meet the avatars and also interested in how the technology works. They were also intrigued by the fact that our newest tech, Derrick Greenspan, is a Crooms Academy alumnus!
