At ISTE, Microsoft announced their Limitless Libraries program. Public libraries and school libraries serving grades 6-12 are encouraged to apply for the program. Winners will receive two virtual reality computers and two Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Microsoft states, “[g]rant applicants whose programs provide exposure and increased knowledge in STEM, and where a high percentage of participating youth are considered underserved as deﬁned in the local context, will be given priority.”
This would be a great opportunity for eligible libraries to enter the VR space. The application for the Limitless Libraries program is open now and closes July 9.
