Kent Island

This is a long-term project that the lab will be developing over the course of the next coming years. The goal of this project is to build an interactive, accessible research environment that will allow for students of both Bowdoin and local schools to play the role of a researcher on Kent Island. In this model students will be looking at several forms of data and learning the needed skills of data analysis and application. Users will be drawing off of years of real data sets which focus on local plants and animals. This experience will be built into a virtual reality environment where students will find themselves immersed in a seemingly true to life representation of the island. This project was developed in Blender and Unity.
