Augmented Reality Technology
Founded in 2007, the PEERS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to empower young people to build healthy and successful lives through innovative and interactive learning programs.
Michael and Scott Seymore formed the PEERS Foundation to help bring educational programs to young people throughout the United States. With years of experience in event design and construction, booking, management and execution, they have spearheaded the success of the PEERS Foundation.
Developing and building highly engaging educational events is crucial to the success of the PEERS Foundation. Given the short-term nature of our programs, it’s critical that they elicit the necessary introspection on behalf of the participants. We work tirelessly to ensure that every event features the latest technology exhibited in novel ways, from our award-winning augmented reality technology to our hard-hitting mobile interactive museums, our interventions are designed to impact and help participants make the right choices.
We recognize that the volume of participants who experience our events provides us with a unique opportunity to enact lasting social change. As such, we are dedicated to ensuring our experiences maximize the impact they have when they engage a participant.
We use detailed perception and knowledge studies to determine the impact our events have on participants. With that said, we are constantly developing new and exciting technologies to evaluate the level of engagement participants have while experiencing all phases of our events.
We also recognize the impact that new and evolving social media outlets provide, and we utilize these platforms when appropriate to further spread our message and reach.
We are truly grateful for our partners, both large and small. From the countless individual donations to the local partnerships in communities hosting our events, we thank you. We’ve had national, social issue tours sponsored by companies like State Farm Insurance, GM AT&T, and Toyota Motors. We would like to thank each one for their support!
Support for the PEERS Foundation has lead to over 1.6 million interactions with our programs over the last decade. With continued support from partners big and small alike, we look forward to challenging today’s youth to make the right choices for years to come.
I just want to thank you so much for having the driving simulator come to Seymour High School this week. The students learned a lot from this experience. The feedback was more than positive!
Our students and staff loved this event. It was very informative and students loved the simulation. Students talked about about how meaningful the message was and saw the damage that can occur through distracted driving.
Mike and his team were amazing to work with for the General Motors UofM recruiting events. Mike and his team were engaging, flexible and educated on the simulator.
This was a win, win for all parties. The staff of PEERS Foundation had a great rapport with our students. The texting and driving experience is a must for all new drivers.
The children we really engaged and enjoyed all of the reactions they experienced while driving the vehicle. The students were able to learn it wasn’t as easy to text and drive as they thought, along with the dangers and consequences texting causes.
Thank you so much for having PEERS Foundation come work with our students at Laurens District 55 High School. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we know our students learned so much from the opportunity.
I had a very very pleasant experience with the staff from Peers. The augmented reality really gave our students a great experience to be behind the wheel and see the effects of driving while distracted, whether it was a phone or others talking and commenting. I definitely enjoyed the experience and I know the students did as well.
Thank you so much for coming to our school. This distracted driving program was a big hit and we heard the students talking about it long into the week. Thank you!
Thank you for visiting our school and helping to educate our students about distracted driving.
Our students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
