Cass Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center Students Go High-Tech: Cass Job Corps students participating in ‘Jobs for America’s Graduates’ (JAG) are taking the lead in developing interactive Virtual Reality (VR) scenarios for the Job Corps program at Cass, AR. These JAG students are developing a virtual tour of their campus which will ultimately lead viewers through each trade program as well as other areas of the campus. The VR environments will also connect traditional Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning strands with Cass's trade programs. Additionally, the JAG students are using the project to develop environmental sustainability VR environments to be presented to their community of interest, both in virtual and physical environments. Interested persons can watch the Cass Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center’s Virtual Environment develop.
