About This Project
Can immersive telepresence systems more effectively educate inland and coastal communities about the hydrosphere?
We propose a new paradigm in how the hydrosphere is taught by using a novel immersive telepresence system tailored for students and citizen scientists. This system enables remote monitoring and control of equipment between an inland waterway and a coastal region. We believe that science education will change to embrace immersive learning and foster continued student engagement. We will prove this system in collaboration with Toledo Public Schools, OH, to measure the overall effectiveness.
