After a rainy week, we had a wonderful turnout for February’s First Friday. Everyone at STEM-VRSE is always excited to see the interest in VR we receive from people at First Friday. This past month was no exception! We had new and returning visitors, alike, stop by to see our new content. Want to see virtual reality as a component in your children’s school? Come talk to us during March’s First Friday! As always, email us questions and comments! We will be hanging out at March’s First Friday on March 1. We will be next to Must Be Heaven, so make sure to come out and see us!
Under the Sea with Riffa Views International School
STEM-VRSE is excited to introduce our first students and classroom! Middle school students at Riffa Views International School (RVIS) began working with STEM-VRSE researchers this past month. They will use VR technology to observe the effect of researchers’ presence on the behavior of reef fish off the coast of New Zealand. Expect updates next month. Let us know if the students at your school would be interested in doing something similar.
Call for Interns
Do you need an internship to complete your degree plan? Interested in what we are doing? Have video ideas? Want to come help us? Do you know someone who would be a perfect fit with STEM-VRSE? We are always looking for people. Check out our website for volunteer AND internship opportunities. Email or come find us at March’s First Friday, March 1!
Ever wonder who’s voice you hear but never see during our weekly meetings? Well one of those voices belongs to one of our volunteers Moses! He came to us last semester and decided to come back and work with us again, this semester. We created a spotlight so you can learn more about him.
To commemorate our first research trip to New Zealand and very successful first year, STEM-VRSE will be selling t-shirts to continue supporting early career researchers and empowering STEM teachers and students with VR. If you enjoy VR, non-profits, education, STEM, Aggie founded & operated, or maybe just the color maroon or the country of New Zealand, buy a shirt. Your support helps us to support STEM research and empower STEM education.
