The Launceston Church Grammar School hosting the AARNet IGLEw (Immersive Global Learning Environment) at the School’s Senior Campus this week.
The IGLEw is an inflatable immersive 3D theatre that combines gaming technologies and visualisation tools to provide students with interactive learning experience in a visually rich setting. Students access real-time data from science and research organisations in Australia and across the globe. Students are able to experience fly-through tours brought to life by imagery from global telescope networks and immersive 3D projection and visualisation tools, accessing multiple live data sources from within the IGLEw.
“We are excited to be having the IGLEw back at the School for a second time,” said Pat Moroney, Head of House and Science Teacher at Launceston Grammar.
“We found that because the IGLEw is fully interactive and visually engaging it allows students to understand more complex concepts easily”
Launceston Grammar is delighted to open the IGLEw up to the local community on:
Sunday 22 June 2014 – 10.00am – 2.00pm
Tom Room Building, Senior Campus
Button Street, Mowbray Heights 7248
