Virtual Realization: 3D scanning and Viewing a Building in VR 

Third Fire

"In the Third Fire, the Anishinabe will find the path to their chosen ground, a land in the West to which they must move their families. This will be the land where food grows on water." 

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to describe how to use a 3D scanner to scan objects and people.

Students will be able to view scanned objects in Virtual Reality.

STEM Activities

Students learn about The Spiro Mounds and develop a virtual museum to exhibit the bead work that they created. Students use 3D scanning equipment to scan the artifacts and then display them inside of the The Spiro Mounds Virtual Museum. Then they use Virtual Reality to navigate and experience The Spiro Mounds Virtual Museum.
