#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Polar State University’s (PSU) Virtual and Augmented Reality Center team conducted panoramic surveys at the Anhydrit mine training ground and at the Octyabrsky mine. Production videos were filmed at a depth of 80 and 800 meters.
“At Octyabrsky, the project team filmed the process of passing a medical examination and the “tea pipeline”: there is a place at the mine where tea with a fruity flavor flows from a tap”, the PSU students said.
The Virtual and Augmented Reality Center won a grant in the Nornickel’s World of New Opportunities charity program’s social projects competition. One of the main objectives of the project is to create VR films for their implementation in the educational process.
“Augmented reality arouses increased interest among students, motivates and allows them to learn the material with greater enthusiasm, safety and efficiency,” the university teachers noted.
As a reminder, some of the PSU students’ ideas will be implemented by Nornickel together with the municipality. Also, two new computer labs have been opened at the northernmost university, students’ internships at Nornickel will be made more efficient, and the university itself has been called a university of rapid career take-off.
