The PepsiCo Technology is a partnership between Duke University Libraries and the Office of Durham and Community Affairs. A PepsiCo endowment funds the program, which aims to keep local classroom teachers abreast of instructional technology innovation; offer curriculum-related materials to support their work; and increase the information literacy of Durham Public Schools students.

What do we do?

PepsiCo Educational Technology provides resources to our Durham Public School partners including workshops, tours, videos and collaborations.

Collaborate on grants!

PepsiCo Educational Technology has collaborated with Durham School of the Arts and GrowingChange on a Prison Flipping project through a State Farm Youth Advisory Board grant.

With the help of the Virtual Reality Learning Experience, during the 2016-2017 academic year, eight high school students in the Game Art & Design concentration at Durham School of the Arts will work with youth participants in GrowingChange to design a virtual reality version of a flipped prison. This will help people visualize abandoned prison’s untapped potential.
