STEM student in 3d CAVE


The School of Integrative Science and Technology is home to a 3D Virtual Reality Computer Assisted Visual Enhancement (CAVE ™) system used in research projects and classroom activities. Wearing special goggles, participants experience an immersive 3D environment.

Generously funded by a National Science Foundation grant, Kean University was one of the first to offer access to this technology in the NY-NJ metropolitan area. Students working on CAVE ™ projects adapt game theory and programming to scientific problems.
