GENESIS designed, developed and launched our Virtual Innovation Campus, revolutionizing how students engage with STEAM learning. The GENESIS Innovation Campus is an immersive, three-dimensional platform that utilizes virtual reality technology to engage visitors in STEAM programs that intersect art + technology. Working with architects, engineers and developers, we created a virtual space that encourages students to explore, innovate, and collaborate, and we have developed a virtual platform that will change the way students engage in STEAM learning.
GENESIS is proud to announce our partnership with the Wende Museum, a collections-based research and education institute that preserves Cold War artifacts and history. The GENESIS Innovation Campus and the Wende Museum are coming together to use art and technology to build revolutionary virtual learning environments. Through the use of gaming, 3D modeling, or virtual/mixed reality, interns supported by the GENESIS educators and Wende Staff researched, designed, and built a collection of interactive virtual exhibition spaces.
GENESIS STEAM is honored to have Michael Muller, World renowned photographer, adventurer, and filmmaker as our partner and mentor to our students. Michael Muller captured the iconic Final Bow photo of Los Angeles Laker legend, Kobe Bryant. The photo was featured on TIME Magazine’s cover commemorating Bryant, and was used all over the world by fans to celebrate the basketball phenominon’s life.
In honor of Kobe Bryant’s legacy, Michael Muller teamed up with SideShow Collectables to create a series of Fine Art Epson Prints. Muller has chosen to have 100% of the profits from these prints benefit GENESIS STEAM. As Muller shared on Instagram, Kobe was all about helping people and the donation to GENESIS STEAM is in his name.
GENESIS STEAM is honored and tremendously grateful to be the recipient of over 45K from Michael Muller and Sideshow Collectibles from the Final Bow Fine Art Prints celebrating the life and legacy of Kobe Bryant.

GENESIS STEAM is proud to have Michael Muller, world renowned photographer, adventurer, and filmmaker as our partner and mentor to our students. Muller hosts exclusive Virtual Reality (VR) Design Studios, and mentors our students with hands-on experience with GoPro Fusion 360 Cameras and the Oculus Go headsets. Combined with contemporary art techniques and cutting edge fabrication equipment in the GENESIS Lab, Michael’s Design Studios engage students to create solutions to current critical ocean problems by imagining and building future ocean prototypes and stories.
Congratulations to the GENESIS Girls in Tech Team for their win at Founders Bootcamp. As first place winners, the team of young women won a $50,000 prize towards further development of their product, Hero, a voice-activated personal safety device discreetly embedded in trendy jewelry. The Hero team will now take their product, currently valued at 1 billion dollars, through an intense development phase over the summer. They will work with mentors from the tech, business and fashion worlds to bring their product to market by the end of 2018.
In light of news headlines detailing the pervasiveness of assault against women, our 2018 Girls in Tech team was moved to create HERO, a voice-activated personal safety device. The discreet wearable technology, embedded into fashionable jewelry, was designed to listen for custom panic words, and when triggered, alert the wearer’s emergency contacts, track location through GPS and record the incident, all without needing a phone or a wifi connection.
2017 went out with a bang for GENESIS with the build-out and opening of a new lab at the Marciano Art Foundation. The partnership with the eclectic contemporary art foundation allows GENESIS to truly operate at the intersection of art and technology, and offer free visits and transportation for K-12 students throughout Los Angeles and beyond. This space is our most cutting-edge location yet, with an industrial grade laser cutter, 3D printer pens, a broadcasting room, and an eleven foot interactive touch wall which doubles as our Skype monitor when students who can’t make it to the lab participate through our virtual field trips. Class visits are currently offered on Wednesdays between 9:00 am – 6:00 pm. Contact us for more information or to schedule a visit.
