This NSF-funded system is installed at the Children's Museum of Atlanta. It is being used to study how VR may be embedded into informal learning environments. Children can customize learning buddies and then can play STEM games with them while parents can help and learn through on-screen messages. The STEM buddies are persistent and can be retrieved through a special code delivered to parents via text messages.
