Fall AGU 2018 conference is the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, and the STEM Innovation Team are attending the conference in full force. The team just submitted numerous presentations in several sessions to showcase the variety and breadth of our work. So come find us to talk about all our new and exciting projects in December 10 – 14th.

Our entire Lab now has internet accessible smart room lights!! New technology here we come! We have found freely accessible online python software to hack together new ways of visualizing science through the medium of lights in the room. What wonderful science projects can you imagine that we can convert to multicolor lights?

We have created a “where’s Parker?” web viewer. To help navigate where our Parker spacecraft will be in the future and to better understand how close to the Sun it will be going, check out our new interactive web tool that we quickly prototyped in a week.

The first mission to touch the Sun – Parker Solar Probe – will be launching in less than a month! We are beginning our month long campaign to focus on supporting all the great NASA scientists working on the Parker Solar Probe mission. First, Parker in Virtual Reality!
Over the next month we will demo a wide range of technologies related to the Parker mission. From 3D printers to touch-tables and Virtual Reality.

Absolutely not!! Sure you can find a specialist developer for gaming engines like Unity or Unreal to beautifully design programs specially for interactive multi-touch tables. But simple web design features can make touch tables a real joy to work with.
