Innovative, Interactive Education
At Nemours Children’s Hospital, our school program, PedsAcademy, is the world’s first pediatric school program designed to provide children in hospitals with research-backed, technology-based educational opportunities specific to a child’s disease or condition. It’s the first children’s hospital to offer immersive virtual reality (kids feel part of simulated, realistic environments) as part of a school program.
PedsAcademy features highly interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education, as well as reading, music and special education. We created the program jointly with the University of Central Florida (UCF).
