Team Meeting

Anticipating possible funding, we began early in order to better align the project plan with school semester boundaries. So far we have done the following:

  • The entire team had a meeting at the school to plan project coordination and high school activities.
  • The graduate students demonstrated and tested a field trip application with students from the high school. This included a pilot test with over 100 students at two schools, followed by a general chat with students about the experience and virtual reality.
  • We started analyzing the data from our tests of the over 75 high school students who had no prior exposure.
  • We gave students a brief introduction to concepts in virtual reality regarding different devices, how VR simulates the different senses, and tips for developing for VR apps.
