Engineering Island Tour

To explore VESLL, a student creates an avatar in Second Life and via the avatar visits VESLL as s/he might visit a brick-and-mortar science museum. S/he begins by entering an orientation center, then proceeds to the various work areas or visits virtual meeting areas within VESLL to discuss ideas or collaborate with other students, faculty, and visitors. Our long term vision is to create a virtual version of these institutions that delves more deeply into the engineering concepts they present to the general public without losing the sense of excitement they provide. The engineering modules present virtual objects for demonstration and experimentation in a social environment while encouraging socially aware community problem solving of social problems, such as providing clean water to a rural community.
