The EAST classrooms and the Media Center recently received new equipment paid for in part by a donation from Facebook. The EAST classroom got two virtual reality headsets, a high-end Alienware computer valued at over $2,500, and a camera that can capture 360-degree photos. Mr. Green, EAST instructor, said MHS is also receiving augmented reality headsets which allow the user to have a virtual hands on experience with things normally unattainable, such as a human heart. Mr. Green said, “I believe this will take hands-on learning to a new level and allow students to learn things they wouldn’t normally learn from a textbook.” A few students have already tried the new equipment, but there are high hopes that it will be available for more students next school year.
