Bringing the Farm to the Classroom with Virtual Reality (Innovation Expo)
March 16, 2021 @ 11:00 AM - 11:30 AMFree
Southwest Minnesota State University
At Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU), students travel to farms many miles from the university to gain valuable farm experience. Unfortunately, weather hazards or other challenges make these visits impossible, leading to missed learning opportunities that cannot be rescheduled. Through the use of virtual reality technology, SMSU is bringing the farm to the classroom, offering an alternative way to engage the farm experience. These experiences either compliment or act as an incidental replacement for farm-based learning opportunities.
