Fort Vancouver Virtual Reality (FVvr) April 2016
FRIENDS is honored to have partnered with NPS and Vancouver Schools to support FVvr (pronounced "Fever") a virtual reality tour of Fort Vancouver created by students from iTech Preparatory School in Vancouver, Washington.
Students worked with NPS at Fort Vancouver for over a year and a half to create FVvr as an educational tool for individuals who want to experience the Fort and learn more about its history and artifacts.
Students used special new cameras that captured 360º images mapping the inside and outside of the buildings, artifacts, costumes and landscape features that form the experience at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.
We congratulate the Vancouver School District and the students from iTech Middle and High School, along with their visionary teacher John Zingale. We also recognize and appreciate the interpretive and cultural resource education work done by NPS staff and volunteers that formed the foundation given to the students as they created the work.
