For the Love of Learning

For those ALL members who remember Ken Levin, his wife Judy, and their son Herschel, please read the article, below, about their family. For newer ALL members, Ken was a CyFair ALL member for many years and then he got busy, really busy. We celebrate his passion for learning and family. Enjoy!

Virtual Reality: Your Body on Mars

Monica Hernandez Valencia, Biology professor, presented a very interesting class on space travel including how our body reacts and what scientists and engineers are doing to combat the physiological and psychological changes experienced by humans after a long stay in space. We learned about some VR apps to download to our smart phones, in conjunction with Google Cardboard VR viewers, and experienced moving around Mars.

You can view Monica's presentation, as a video, here.
