This research environment was funded by a National Science Foundation award to Kean University. Dr. George Chang and Dr. Patricia Morreale (Kean University Computer Science Faculty, serving as co-PI’s), worked with Dr. David Joiner(PI) from the Center for Science and Technology on this grant.
Funded by a $593,820 grant from the National Science Foundation, the CAVE ™ an immersive virtual reality environment is located on the fourth floor of the STEM building on the Liberty Hall Campus. By wearing special goggles, visitors can experience a 3D environment. Research projects and classroom activities where 3-D simulation could enhance the ability to ‘dig deeper’ or ‘see further’ can benefit from this environment.
