A $5 million science experiment is a dream for a lot of people.
The idea of making your own lab, testing out your ideas and then watching them fail and then trying again?
That’s what happened to this kindergartener.
Now, a new science experiment from the University of Michigan’s School of Education and Science is giving some parents nightmares.
The program, called K-12 Science, uses a “virtual reality” environment to simulate an educational classroom environment.
The students spend a couple hours working with a computer model of the room.
The results are then fed back into a real classroom.
The system works by creating an interactive experience in which students interact with real objects and interact with one another in real time.
For some parents, this might not seem like a feasible solution.
Parents who work with young children may not have the time to teach them the correct science concepts or how to read and write in a virtual environment.
But this new program is making parents and teachers wonder how they can keep up.
“It’s just one more way that you can bring people together, to bring them together to actually make a difference,” says Megan Matson, director of the School of Engineering at Michigan State University.
