#TOYZSTEAM Dah-Varsity Scholars is a program focused on increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) creator industry.
Through its Dah-Varsity app, users are taken into an interactive world where people are empowered to be the superhero version of themselves. The goal is to improve the economic mobility of disadvantaged populations by exposing them to STEAM.
The program uses digital storytelling, 3D modeling, game design, coding, audio production, music, and entrepreneurship to teach students how to create, sell, and tell their stories through designing and manufacturing superhero toys.
