I am a mentor to high school girls in the Seattle area and am helping them build their tech project portfolios for college applications. Would love to share tips, ideas, projects with other teachers/mentors.
I am currently working for a university working on a Hololens project and brought on a high school Junior going to be a senior from my high school. I would love to help out any way I can to help people connect with technology in high school. My school didn't do any of that and would like to help people out the best I can. Hope you can make strides in this area.
Good luck have fun!
We developed an app/teaching tool to simulate different gravity on holograms. We would be happy to share the app files with any teachers who would like to see the program on Unity & Visual Studio.

I run a game design course for high school seniors (12th grade). I teach Unity in this class and for the past semester we've been learning to develop content for Hololens. I have three units available to the class. Right now they're just getting the basics down. They're fresh to everything 3d game design related; so, that means in one semester they're being introduced to Unity, 3D modeling, coding, and now Hololens. I used the Hololens tutorials to serve as both an introduction to Unity and Hololens at the same time. If anyone is interested for more information on what we're up to, or just to discuss, I'd love to have a conversation about it.
We got news coverage of our game design class developing for Hololens. Here are a couple of links:
