Virtual Reality Chemistry Lab Study
October 2, 2018
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until December 21, 2018
The RAND Corporation is currently recruiting high school students to test out a virtual reality chemistry lab developed by Schell Games, a local game developer. Participating students will come to RAND for a four-hour study session where they will perform a couple of chemistry labs in virtual reality. In addition to testing out the virtual labs, some participants will also complete an online instructional chemistry module. To assess learning there will be a couple of quizzes, and we will ask a few questions about interests related to science and career. Students will receive snacks and a $100 gift card to Amazon as a thank you for their time. For details about how to participate, please e-mail VRstudy@rand.org.
