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.
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.
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
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!
Thank you for graciously providing our students with a driving simulation they will never forget. I’d especially like to commend your staff members, Cindy and Mike for demonstrating professionalism, friendliness and patience. Your generous offering of time, equipment and personnel will certainly assist our students int their lives out of school.
I just wanted to share how much fun our students had with the texting and driving simulator event. The presenters were knowledgeable, engaging and very talented in their presentation to the students.
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.
The students took the experience seriously. While in the simulator, they tried their hardest to avoid obstacles and saw firsthand the effects of distractions. They also enjoyed watching their fellow students spectacularly mess up.
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.
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.
