VR-Simulation / Immersive Science Learning
Even if it rains more during the summer and if the rain barrells overflow more frequently, it is difficult for me to grasp what climate change means.
VR could be a solution for this. If you are the owner of a HTC Vive, you can download the simulation of coral reef here and experience the effects of coral death.
The simulation was developed in the Virtual Interaction Lab at the Stanford University.
