The BEYA Metaquake Symposium will take place February 2-4 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Northwest Washington, DC. Scheduled the week before the 37th annual BEYA STEM Conference, the event will explore the metaverse by bringing together K-12 students, educators, researchers, business professionals, artists, gamers, and writers to explore and learn.

The symposium will provide a dedicated space for novices and veterans alike to learn from seasoned experts and foster connections within the worlds of technology, business, education, and government.

The event will provide a deeper understanding of the technologies that are the foundation of the metaverse which include cryptocurrency, blockchain, NFTs, gaming, VR/AR, Web3, education, and beyond.

We want to start the conversation that answers the question most people ask when they hear about the metaverse: what is the metaverse and what does that mean for me?

We’re especially proud to annex the BEYA Pre-College program to anchor this event where the youth will learn about the metaverse and the tools used to create metaverses. We will, in addition to the traditional program, engage the students in a scholastic metaverse building competition which will culminate into a metaverse hackathon.

Additionally, we will re-engage with past award recipients to induct the sixth class since 2010, into the Alumni Hall of Fame as beacons and resources for the next generation to benchmark their pursuit of excellence – on their personal journey to becoming everything they can be.

This event is for anyone who is curious about the metaverse and wants to engage in discussions designed to expand your knowledge, identify your points of entry in this emerging technology, and understand how your future may evolve.

It’s for educators and students. Organizations that are exploring or engaging teams to develop and implement metaverse strategies. It’s for individuals who want to know how metaverse strategies can disrupt a carefully planned career trajectory. It’s for anyone who grapples with the jargon of the metaverse and wishes to gain a base knowledge that they can build on.

Seminars will be hosted by the American Society Of Naval Engineers, The Boeing Company, Career Communications Group, General Dynamics, Huntington Ingalls Industries, General Motors, the Patriots Training Center,  Summit Scholars, and the University of the District of Columbia.
