zSpace uses 3D, haptic enabled technology to allow students the opportunity to explore science concepts. This technology is transforming and accelerating STEM education, creating a ‘real world virtual reality created for education.’ Focusing on learning by doing, the zSpace STEM Lab comes with a suite of science software and curriculum resources that offer learning experiences across grade levels through the sciences and STEM topics. The stylus is designed with 6 degrees of freedom and uses all of your senses in a way that feels natural.
We are investigating perceptions of virtual presence and the affordances of the zSpace system for learning science.
