Space Sight is a an exploration of Virtual Reality combined with the instruction of astronomy in higher education. This project encompasses a guided tour and a mission-based lab.
Team / Lauren and Jasmine
Responsibilities / Research, After Effects Animation, Filming, Video Editing.
Problem / Students need a science credit that introductory astronomy classes offer. Engagement is an issue since these students have no real interest in astronomy. In addition, the visual nature of astronomy courses in higher education is lacking which adds to the disinteret of students. Students should be taking classes that genuinely excite them and impact their lives afterwards
Solution / Space Sight, an astronomy education experience.
