You can now access a physics lab with remote reality. The aim is to provide students with tools they need to understand in a more attractive and precise concepts they are studying in class, through a system of physics teaching units.
The developed system is a mixture of virtual reality and augmented reality: we have a real environment, which superimpose virtual elements, but the ultimate detail is that both the real environment and virtual elements can be modified by the user of the system, and all this can be done from a different physical location, remotely.
The magnetic confinement fusion is shown as a future way to obtain large amounts of relatively clean energy. Today, we are building the first experimental fusion reactor called ITER in France. This experiment is an international affiliation for as goal common to all its members, access to this energy source.
In Spain, in addition to supporting ITER, it has an experimental device called TJ-II, located in the premises of the National Fusion Laboratory (LNF), CIEMAT. This group is the main responsible for fusion research in Spain.
The project’s main objective GLOBAL tour is to allow students and teachers access to experimental laboratories of various infrastructure resources to improve science programs, enriching existing schools teaching and learning materials. By connecting electronic infrastructure, resources and tools to schools, students can experience challenging learning situations. Therefore, students gain knowledge in the real scientific work and are able to revitalize interest in natural science education.
Another objective within GLOBAL tour is to enable a growing number of users from all disciplines of science and engineering, publish and disseminate effectively the use of infrastructure in order to increase levels of participation in research global importance and allow potential users to access and share resources and instruments. In this context, four major areas of science have been selected to be the first use cases to GLOBAL tour: nanotechnologies, biotechnologies, volunteer computing and life sciences.
