Mission

SUNRISE believes a child can learn anything.

Many children have a difficult time understanding complex ideas in many subject areas, especially science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  The company sees virtual learning as an important part of the effort to improve education and help students engage with subjects.   SUNRISE believes schools are the real incubators for new ideas and innovation, literally bursting at the seams with enthusiasm through active young minds at work creating, building, thinking, and exploring.

Founding

SUNRISE was founded by MIT researcher Brett Reid.  An African-American from a family of educators, Mr. Reid saw the potential in virtual reality applications to help underserved Chicago students learn by introducing powerful new tools into the educational process.  Over the next decade, SUNRISE created more virtual learning programs than any other company in the world, primarily used in clinical, controlled environments.

 

Today SUNRISE offers every school the opportunity to use virtual learning.
