For the past two years, we've been working...

Webdroid will be a Computer Laboratory ideally located in district 2, the university district, aimed at engaging youth and young adults in esports and tech education. Webdroid doubles as an esports hub and an education platform. 

Webdroid has recently piloted our curriculum and education platform within 3 of the Boys & Girls Clubs locations in Detroit and the surrounding area. Students have been interviewed and applied to participate within the cohort and they have been exposed to Industry Leaders, like the Red Wings, Ninja, and real esports players and teams. The day-to-day curriculum has been developed and executed by Webdroid. 

We want to bring a series of Esports labs to Detroit to aimed at engaging youth ages high school-college. Webdroid was founded by Joshua Ashford, a coding instructor, and web designer from Detroit who saw a need for more innovative spaces aimed at engaging youth, and helping to restore safe, walkable areas within Detroit. We hope to participate in this years Hatch Competition and meeting new members of the Hatch team.

Close your eyes and Imagine, that you are in Detroit, walking on the west side of the city to get some lunch. Its a warm sunny beautiful day in the city University district of Detroit, and you're just coming up on the local coney island that you love, when you see a new store that you've never noticed prior.

This new establishment has a large blue neon sign that reads "Webdroid: esports & technology" in a pixelated, slightly angled font that gives you the feeling of excitment that you haven't yet felt today. in lieu of the coney that you had your tastebuds fixed on, you decide to enter the new store, and what do you see?...

computers and neopn lights as far as you can see; and Young people, from adolescence stages, through to young adulthood, communing in one area, all gaming, learning, and building community. Some are learning cloud computing, another young lady is learning graphic design, and others are gaming with their friends.

Detroit is growing, and many new & exciting changes will soon be upon the many residents of the city. As Detroit continues to grow, we need to ensure that the communities are built with young people in mind. Webdroid: Esports & Technology will meet the youth where the are, and house an inclusive community of tech-enthused youth in education and esports.
