Augmenting the Virtual Reality of Pikeville
We are preparing our students for jobs that don’t yet exist. Computational Thinking must be the core of our educational systems in order to establish a competent workforce in Kentucky. Through Computer Science we are helping to foster critical thinking and problem solving through the skill sets of Computational Thinking. Augmented and Virtual Reality projects will be one more tool in the toolbox of technological equipment used to build a vertically aligned CS curriculum. Our Collaboratory, a makerspace is designed to build an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem where students are able to apply their tech skills to real world problem solving. This project will give students the opportunity to create Augmented Reality Products, not just use the fun filters of Snapchat! The 360 degree camera will give student the opportunity to offer their city the creation of Virtual Reality tours of important landmarks and destinations in our region to share with the world.
