Hidden No More VR
The Hidden No More VR Experiences are part of a National Science Foundation funded project entitled Hidden No More: Shedding Light on Science Stories in the Shadows. The project has three phases, each focusing on a characteristic of light.
In Phase 1, users can explore the relationship between light and color and learn more about the work of two featured scientists, Kamal al-Din al-Farisi and Mercedes López-Morales. The VR experience transports viewers to the observatories of the scientists where they participate in research — learning how rainbows are formed and searching for exoplanets with the light of distant stars.
In Phase 2, users will explore discoveries and inventions connected to light and energy and learn about the work of Lewis Latimer and Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi.
The final phase will focus on the interplay between light and time.
