Microsoft HoloLens

The Outreach and Education Technology Transfer team are using the Microsoft HoloLens to help inspire our community and high school students to pursue an education in the STEM field. The Microsoft HoloLens is a virtual reality headset that projects 3D holograms into your surrounding areas. Through the headset, learning becomes more interactive and transforms from standard 2D methods of learning to a whole new 3D world of learning. Students are able to travel the world and see/do unthinkable things. The HoloLens offers endless simulations from being able to perform open-heart surgery, to being transported to Mars and stand in the middle of a crater and explore through the eyes of the Mars Rover. We hope to connect the HoloLens with our very own Mars Yard and take with us to our outreach events.
