Virtual Reality / Digital Education

On March 27, 2015, Bill Haslam, the Governor of Tennessee, visited Tennessee Tech for the 100th Anniversary of the University. During his visit, Governor Haslam stopped by iCube for a tour, where he witnessed first-hand the innovative projects students are developing here on campus using emerging technologies such as the Oculus Rift and the Viscube.

After swimming around a polluted stream and flying through Derryberry Hall, Governor Haslam was able to meet the staff and students responsible for his virtual experiences.

We are grateful for the time Governor Haslam spent with us, and look forward to future visits!
