Kirby Middle School alumnus creates new "worlds"

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A former Kirby Middle School student is bringing fun and educational goodies to several Texoma schools.

Nathan Kong grew up in Wichita Falls and now he is a sophomore at Stanford University majoring in Material Sciences Engineering.

Kong created a non-profit organization called DIVR EDU that provides schools, like Kirby, virtual reality headsets. Kong said they can help students learn in an interactive and creative way.

"We're giving under-resourced schools this new technology," Kong said. "Virtual reality is something that people think is a super faraway future tech but using Google Chrome Cardboard we can actually have this affordable system of giving these fun engaging virtual worlds to people."

He also designs augmented reality games too like Curios, a pet simulator game for Apple IOS with a dog.

Kirby students will get to use the virtual reality headsets next month.
