Experience the CoMix was created through a partnership between Illegal Pete’s and Pop Culture Classroom. Each year, tickets to Denver Comic Con — a program of Pop Culture Classroom — are given to middle and high school students with the goal of helping these students experience pop culture as a fun and engaging educational tool. Experience the CoMix also teaches students about the many career paths that pop culture offers.
