Virtual Science Classes at FSU

EOAS Professors Bill Landing, Mike Stukel, Mariana Fuentes, Sven Kranz and Rob Spencer worked with Stephanie Dillon, director of freshman labs in the Dept. of Chemistry/Biochchemistry, to design new virtual life classrooms for their students that allow them to learn essentially by playing in a 3-D virtual world. In the environmental science lab, students travel to Easter Island, the Great Barrier Reef, and drill ice cores in the Antarctic. Students create avatars, become the scientist, speak with each other and their professors.
