Senses Bureau - Virtual Explorer

Many fields of science education such as astronomy, quantum mechanics, rainforest ecology and immunology present students with enormous visualization challenges that are not easily overcome through traditional textbook-based teaching methods. In order to achieve a basic understanding of the subject matter, students must integrate vast amounts of information about processes that occur asynchronously at disparate locations and on multiple length and time scales. The Virtual Explorer project, developed by the Senses Bureau at UCSD, seeks to create highly interactive 3D virtual environments for science education, which provide stimulating, immersive learning enrichment experiences.
