Darryll Starr is a former game developer who now teaching underprivileged youth how to create VR experiences with Unity at the David E Glover Education and Technology Center in Oakland, CA. Starr is the lead instructor and curriculum developer who has been adapting the Exploring Computer Science curriculum to use more state-of-the art tools from the games industry. I had a chance to talk with Starr at the Samsung Developers Conference about his various initiatives to increase the accessibility of emerging technologies to the diverse and underrepresented communities in Oakland. He talks about some of the experiences his students have created, the different programs and initiatives at The Glover Center, and the level of engagement and excitement that he’s seeing from getting an opportunity to develop immersive experiences.
