This presentation will highlight the collaboration activities of the University of Minnesota with community colleges, industry, the Northern Lights GigaPoP, and regional K-12 initiatives.

In addition to sharing this story of community and collaboration enabled by extending access to advanced networking resources, the presenters, which include two members of the Internet2 K20 Advisory Committee, will describe projects including college and high school courses utilizing Internet2 advanced technologies and opportunities for using virtual reality for simulation-based education. This session will feature live presentations from the Johnson Center for Virtual Reality at Pine Technical College and from the Digital Technology Center at the University of Minnesota with an interactive discussion about virtual reality and its use in the classroom.
