The newest 3D computer models by zSpace were an ideal choice to bolsterÂ the school’s STEMÂ (science, technology, engineering and math)Â curriculum.
LAS CRUCESÂ – When classes begin early next monthÂ at New America School in downtown Las Cruces, students will be able to dissect an eyeball with the click of a mouse.
They’ll also get to feel heartbeats at their fingertips while examining a cross-section of a human heart, watch the entireÂ life cycle of a butterfly before their eyes, and later solve a crime through the latestÂ forensic science technology.
All of which will be made possible through five recently purchasedÂ computers featuring technology that combines virtual realityÂ and augmented reality to create an immersive and interactive learning experience.
Principal Margarita Porter said the new computers â the newest models by zSpace âÂ were an ideal choice to bolsterÂ the school’s STEMÂ (science, technology, engineering and math)Â curriculum.
“We looked at these computers and we thought this was a great way to bring the technology and the science into ourÂ classroom while keeping our students safe,” Porter said,Â “and they don’t have to have a large, fully equipped science lab when we can bring it just to a computer.”
