The Black Student Fund, Latino Student Fund and NexTech AR Partner to Create Free Interactive K-12 Independent School Fair for Students of Color
NexTech AR will help create a virtual fair offering resources, presentations, workshops and more to help students of color explore independent education options
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NexTech AR Solutions (NexTech) (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29), an emerging leader in augmented reality for eCommerce, AR learning applications, AR-enhanced video
conferencing and virtual events is pleased to announce that the Black Student Fund (BSF) and Latino Student Fund (LSF) have chosen NexTech’s InfernoAR platform for its 48th Annual School Fair on October 11, 2020.
The BSF and LSF Annual School Fair is a forum for Washington metropolitan area families seeking information about independent school education. The annual event draws students, teachers and administrators from more than 70 local and national independent schools and educational programs in an effort to provide students of color with more accessible insight and guidance on the independent education options available to them.
This year’s school fair is the first to be held virtually and will be available through NexTech’s InfernoAR platform, a comprehensive all-in-one platform, to simplify accessibility and maintain the interactive spirit of the event. The one-day event will feature a number of workshops, chat rooms, recorded content, a digital resources library and participant incentives to guide students through the application process and financing solutions for independent education options.
“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, our team at BSF and LSF was challenged with creating a virtual version of our 3000 in-person event. With NexTech AR, we will be able to create an elevated event experience beyond what our in-person school fairs have offered in years past and enable multiple new ways for families to learn about educational opportunities available to their children,” said Leroy Nesbitt, Executive Director, The Black Student Fund. “This technology will facilitate not only school to family connections but provide a way for us to feed our families with information about admissions and financial aid crucial to process to matriculation to independent schools.”
