archeology island on ScienceSim

For you educators and archeology buffs, we’ve got a special treat. Ms. Marion Smeltzer of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania will be at this Friday’s Nonprofit Commons to talk about the sim she built called Archeology Island on the ScienceSim (opensim) virtual platform.

Archaeology Island consists of virtualizations of archaeological sites investigated by faculty members in the IUP , including a Monongahela Village, a Roman site in Cyprus, an underwater shipwreck, a Maya site in Belize , and the Laurel Hill /Brown farm, was the site of an antebellum community of former slaves. Come find out how these recreations are being used to further research and education at IUP.

That’s this Friday, April 6, starting at 8:30am PT at the Plush Nonprofit Commons amphitheater. See you then!
