DRIVE6 is a six-sided virtual reality enclosure displaying real-time 3D stereographic visualization that allows users to move physically into and interact with a simulated, recreated, imagined or altered environment.
Squyres, best known for his work as the principal investigator for the Mars Exploration Rover Project (MER) and his study of the history and distribution of water on Mars, will spend the morning with students as a way to get them excited about science. In addition to taking students on a tour of the surface of Mars, he will talk about his work and answer questions from the students.
“I am excited to share my experiences with these eager young scientists,” Squyres said.
