STEM 3000

Matt Sparks is an entrepreneur, writer, teacher, and inventor living in Austin, Texas. He has a BA in Literature and an MBA in Entrepreneurship. Growing up in the family video arcade business, by age seven he could beat anyone in Iowa on the game Defender… while playing solely with his feet. He soon began fixing and programming games, and now he’s focused on VR, AR, MR, and AI as training tools; educational games; and his various ventures, projects, and inventions. He writes a blog and a monthly column on VR/AR/MR and AI in e-Learning, and he's written multiple books as well. When he’s not rock climbing, gardening, or traveling, he’s exploring how new technologies are changing how we teach, learn, and think.
