Virtual reality designers, or specialists, create the artificial, three-dimensional worlds that help researchers go about their imaginative work. There is increasing demand in STEM fields such as medicine, engineering, and architecture for workers who can apply virtual reality technology to problems and help solve them. The entertainment industry is also employing specialists to create virtual reality and 3D environments for games and movies.
In this series of three short videos, students will hear how virtual reality modeling is being used in a number of disciplines and applications. Students will learn about career paths into the Virtual Reality field and how the math and science they learned in high school will help them later in their professional lives. Through accompanying concept videos students also learn how the math and science concepts they are learning are used in the real-world by STEM professionals. The concept videos will help meet Ohio Academic Content Standards for Physics and Trigonometry.
