Interactive Health Education with zSpace

The Cranston Public Library's mission is to bring people, information, and ideas together to enrich lives and strengthen the community. Our community includes a growing number of immigrants and new citizens who are facing language and technology barriers when it comes to acquiring health information and resources. In order to lower that barrier, the library is proposing new technology enhancements in order to communicate health information to its users, with a particular emphasis on ESL learners, through interactive visuals. The Cranston Public Library would purchase a zSpace, which is an all-in-one computer that integrates augmented and virtual reality components to produce an immersive learning experience for users. The provided software would engage users as they explore complex STEM subjects such as anatomy and chemistry.
