Serious Games Meetup Group

The third meeting of the SSeriousGamesMeetup2erious Games Meetup Group is on Friday, February 3 at 10:30 a.m. in Lyons Hall 122.  Experience the immersive power of Virtual Reality (VR) in a one-hour play session.

VR is well known for thrill-inducing virtual roller coaster rides and other entertaining experiences.  However, it can also be a powerful tool for immersive and interactive story telling experiences that serve educational purposes. In this VR play session we will experience educational applications of VR that include a brief history of flight, exploration of anatomy within a human body, journey to the moon on board the Apollo 11 spacecraft, an autism simulator and others.
