World Science Festival together with Abelana VR Productions has prepared an experimental virtual reality classroom experience to be broadcast in cooperation with an international network of VR centers and theaters. Science enthusiasts from USA, Canada, Brazil, UK, South Africa, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Romania, Belarus, and Israel will participate in a live interactive virtual reality lecture conducted by World Science Festival co-founder and Columbia University professor Brian Greene that will explore such topics as extra dimensions, unified theory of physics and the multiverse. Participants will explore the social experience of a worldwide virtual classroom, while creating and handling higher dimensional objects that stretch the bounds of what’s possible in a real environment.
The experience will be broadcast from New York on June 1st, 2017, at 2pm New York time. It will be the first VR network broadcasting of this kind that specifically targets VR centers and theaters.
