About the Immersion Room

Elder Una at the Immersion RoomWhat is an Immersion Room?

The Immersion Room is a purpose-built space that incorporates interactive and blended media that is projected onto four walls to create an engaging 360º learning experience. The experience is like virtual reality, but in a group setting, allowing for collaboration in a highly sensory environment.

It is a space that fills your senses with engaging imagery and sound for simulation, story telling, and communications that can enhance instructional content.
