Black History Month 2024
Virtual Reality Lab
Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer-simulated experience that immerses one inside of a virtual world that can be a real or an imaginary place. The depth of the immersive experience depends on the type of equipment used and the nature of the accompanying software application. This hands-on VR Lab focuses on African American history and experiences, including themes about racism and social justice. No prior experience with VR is necessary. The Pollak Library VR Event Team will help you with all equipment.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- explore a handful of VR experiences, and
- use both high-end and low-budget VR equipment (including free apps for your smartphone)
