We are a female-led interdisciplinary team reimagining the future of education in the metaverse. In the US, student disengagement affects 56% of high school students, and costs society billions of dollars. Based in Miami, FL and operating on three continents, we build experiential, unclosable and personalized 3D schools for learners to learn and thrive, freed from the limits of the physical world.
We are set out to build an awe-inspiring metaverse where children learn and bond together in elevating and personalized VR spaces. This edtech metaverse will change their lives by empowering them to learn anywhere, anytime.
We build 3D cloud-based schools where they can learn science on Mars, Biology class is in the Arctic circle ; they learn math by climbing a fractal pyramid and have English class in the middle of the Oval Office.
Learners can also travel in time: through our career simulator, they can meet their potential futures selves to “remember” the future success they aspire to materialize in the physical world.
We are now in an unprecedented position to harness immersive technology to unlock our human potential independently of the constraints of the physical world: space, time, gravity, and scarcity. And education is the field where we seek to enrich people’s lives at all stages of their lifetime. This technology empowers us to learn and teleport anywhere, anytime thereby giving us unprecedented access to exponential mobility and opportunity.
We work around the world to make our platform accessible to learning communities of all ages so they can build inspiring worlds together, co-design transformative experiences and elevate their experience in the real world.
EQLAB was founded by Dr. Alexandra Ivanovitch, alumna of the École Normale Supérieure (Ulm) in Paris, former research fellow in Digital Humanities at the Paris-Sorbonne University, where she used to teach at all undergraduate levels.
Dr. Ivanovitch’s work in conscious VR has been covered by Forbes, WIRED, CNN, the Nikkei, and has received global media coverage in 32 countries on 5 continents. She was invited as a speaker at the World Expo 2020 in Dubai to share her insights about the impact and challenges of technology for the next 50 years to come.
Her first ventures in the field of human-centered VR were sponsored by the creators of Star Trek to help materialize a hopeful and inspiring future of peaceful exploration.
