From the looks of it I’d guess that’s a homemade VR headset he’s holding – rad!
Lab coordinators teach science using scientific visualization techniques – such as virtual reality, augmented reality and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) – and encourage kids to learn how to code and build with impromptu electronics demonstrations and formal classes. The lab boasts many different types of software and hardware technologies such as augmented reality, GIS, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, robotics, 3-D modeling and 3-D printing. The lab’s formal goal is to teach science and how science is done. The lab’s informal goal is to encourage as many children as possible to become the next great scientists and inventors by demystifying the world of science, programming and electronics.
