zSpace and Virtual Reality in Education

Thornburg Thoughts

For example, we converted a room into a virtual mission to Mars, with a large viewscreen in the front of the room where students could see where they were going. About two years ago a friend of mine encouraged me to see a new environment ― zSpace ― that generated highly interactive 3-D models of everything from living organisms to physics experiments. The traditional frog dissection, for example, is supported in this system quite nicely, and without the mess!
