Academics in the Visualization Lab

The visualization lab is an incredibly flexible space that can be utilized in teaching any academic discipline, from the sciences to the humanities.
For more information, call 315-228-6126 or e-mail Joe Eakin to see how the vis lab can be incorporated into your class.

A Teaching Tool

From recreating the night sky, to recreating scenes from antiquity, our faculty are constantly finding ways to incorporate the lab into their innovative syllabi.

Students Create Content

Understanding that teaching is often the best way to learn, our students get involved in the lab developing new shows and materials. Their work includes 3D modeling, script writing, and even the composition of music.

Courses Utilizing the Lab

The visualization lab has the following goals when collaborating with faculty on course materials and teaching opportunities:
  • Engage students in interactive teaching modules.
