VirtualFifth grade students teamed up with first grade students to explore the circulatory system with simulated objects in a virtual environment.

Monfort is one of four schools in UCS to offer zSpace, a virtual reality lab. This tool allows students to interact with simulated objects in virtual environments as if they are real. zSpace incorporates four cameras for head-tracking, a stylus that allows for both precise pointing and true 3D manipulation of objects, and uses special glasses. Students lift virtual holographic images from the screen an manipulate them with the stylus in actual 3D.
