Students Try Their Hands at 3D Learning

Hicksville High School students were recently given a dose of reality –augmented/virtual reality, that is, as the zSpace mobile center parked in front of the administration building for a few hours to allow them to use these very unique computer systems.

zSpace computers offer an interactive 3D educational experience. Through the use of 3D glasses and a stylus pen, users uncover different lessons that virtually pop off the monitor screens. Students were able to dissect a heart, explore animal anatomy in-depth and even build a circuit during their time using the equipment. The zSpace systems can utilize several apps and software covering  different sciences and mathematical concepts, among other areas.

The opportunity was one of several efforts by the Hicksville Public Schools to research and introduce students to new instructional technology resources.
