i-STEM Article Features Armory Innovation Spaces

The i-STEM education initiative featured an article on the Armory Spaces supporting an after-school STEM program with the Next Generation School.

“The Illinois VR Lab they visited is part of CITL’s (Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning)iFLEX initiative to build active learning classrooms around campus. In the case of the cave unit, the technology allowed the kids to see their paintings come to life on cave walls, explore the world’s caves via GPS, take a tour of a real cave via virtual reality, and 3D print some cave formations. Jim Wentworth, an eLearning professional supervising the lab and its Innovation Studio, worked with the students as they explored various caves throughout the world both through Google Earth and YouTube 360 videos using the TechHub portion of the Armory Innovation Spaces.”
