World Window is a portable interactive stereo visualization system developed by Dr. Andrew Warnock in collaboration with the College of Natural Sciences Dean's office and CSMATE in Early 2008. The 3rd dimension is a critical element of imagination that is missing from the worksheets, textbooks, and computer screens that dominate classrooms today.
The World Window portable interactive 3-D theater allows groups of ~25 students at a time to visualize abstract concepts in a natural and realistic way. It is particularly well suited for studying nature at very large or very small scales and for visualizing reconstructions of the past. A series of 30 minute shows that can be used for education and outreach are in the works.
