Girls in STEAM: VR Day

June 11 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join us for a special program geared towards girls 8 and up as an introduction to STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, & Math) learning. We will explore the wonderful world of Virtual Reality through the Meta Quest 2 VR system! Learn about physics as you explore an abandoned technology lab in GRAVITY LAB. Step into the moon boots of real NASA astronauts as you dock a capsule and take a space walk in MISSION ISS. Explore your creativity side as we put the ART in STEAM with TILT BRUSH. This program was funded by the Helen Faust Fund of the Central Pennsylvania Community Foundation.

Pre-registration is required. Call 946-0417 ext 123 to register or register online at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfK2fqRyZPPPKd4FJYQP9v2nH3Tmk0JxmIzFpW0O9jiFuSn9Q/viewform?usp=sf_link

 

Participants should be aware that this program involves the use of Virtual Reality equipment, specifically the Meta Quest 2 VR system. These systems are designed to be used for short bursts at a time (5-10 minutes) and are comfortable for most individuals but can cause headaches, stomach upset, and other symptoms for motion sensitive individuals. The Altoona Library is not responsible for any motion sickness related symptoms associated with VR.
