Bring Virtual Reality to your students with BeyondReality@UNO, a virtual reality maker space funded by NASA that allows you and your students to use VR tools. The 2-day workshop will guide teachers through the use of 2 different VR labs – Density and Materials – with follow-up hands-on labs for each. Teachers may then bring their students to the BeyondReality@UNO maker space or request the equipment be brought to them to use in their classrooms. The facility includes virtual and extended reality headsets, software, and computers. Our experts provide training in 3D virtual reality development and extended reality use in education and training applications. Stipend available.

GNO STEM provides quality teacher professional development, hands-on STEM camps for students and teachers, and organized successful community STEM events that draw thousands of K-12 students, families, and teachers.
