Come to a VR event and try out a 15-minute session on either the Oculus Rift or Oculus Go headset (made available through the Washington State Library). 

A variety VR experiences are available, including a journey through the bloodstream (The Body VR), a tour of the White House (The People’s House), and a visit to the International Space Station (Mission:ISS), as well as interactive, immersive environments (Oculus First Contact). 

Participants will be asked to complete a brief, anonymous survey about their experience for the Washington State Library's research on the value of VR as a multi-sensory educational tool.
