Student Workers for the Hyperbolic Space Lab

About

Theoretical physical models interact closely with experimental research by classifying the observations from the experiments and providing methods for new predictions. One of those complex concepts is the theory of curved spaces, which appear e.g., in the vicinity of black holes or as important mathematical tools in theoretical physics and cosmology.

To make it easier for students to get started with the abstract topic, an immersive learning environment concept is to be created in which students can interactively experience the basic properties of curved spaces in VR applications.

Project WueDive

WueDive is an EU funded project with a focus on the further development of digital teaching. WueDive initiates and coordinates engagement with new learning requirements and learning opportunities by establishing a Digital Higher Education Hub. We usher in modern technology for digital teaching and motivate teachers to embark on new paths in teaching through easy access and personal support. The spectrum ranges from simple solutions (e.g. screencasts, lecture recordings, quizzes) to sophisticated systems for programming VR/AR that address additional levels of sensory perception for students in a computer-assisted manner - in contrast to conventional teaching - and thus enable deeper learning experiences.
