Experience how virtual and augmented reality is changing education in STEAM and The Arts in our Virtual Lounge. Several Oculus Rift and HTC Vive systems will be available for you to explore VR software that is being used at schools and colleges to teach students subjects like physics, space science, painting and sculpture, medicine and others. Virtual reality isn’t just for gaming but can provide students with experiences imaginary and real allowing them to be immersed in virtual worlds to help experience the effects of weightlessness while working in space, perform surgery on virtual patients, and create virtual paintings in 3D space with what are seemingly real world tools. The Virtual Reality Lounge is provided by MxCC’s Center for New Media.
