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.
We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both our students and teachers about both the presentation and the experience with your team. Our kid shad a great time, all while being educated.
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!
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.
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.
Your team was amazing! Jordan, Cindy and Mike did such a great job with out students at Harbor Beach, and our kids has a blast in the simulator.
Our kids were highly engaged and the information was well received. I appreciated it so much and hope we can have another outing next school year!
The activity was certainly an eye opener for our students. While there is no substitute for actual experience and learning, the augmented reality program takes things to a whole new level. Our students came out buzzing.
It was a great success! We are hopeful that it will make a huge difference in distracted driving among the students who experienced the simulator, but also the kids that they tell about it.
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.
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
