zSpace Technology in STEM Education

zSpace is the ultimate immersive learning experience. Instead of just reading about science, zSpace allows students to interact with objects and really understand the science behind them. With zSpace, students can learn highly engaging tasks that are often too complex, expensive and/or dangerous for the classroom.

Imagine dissecting a frog or a human without getting messy or building a robot without having to worry about limited supplies or student safety. Then imagine doing this and much more during your 45-minute science class or basic anatomy class—with zSpace you can!

The zSpace STEM package combines high definition 3D experience and interactive engagement within the zSpace environment along with learning applications built around the Next Generation Science Standards. Hardware, software and curriculum support is included.

Bring the FUN back to learning!

Inspires student understanding through an entirely new way of learning
Virtual reality learning environment where anything is possible with ease, including, manipulating gravity, freezing time, reversing a chemical reaction and never running out of supplies.

Empowers mastery based learning
Encourages learning through trial and error by dramatically reducing the time needed to reset, repeat and alter experiential learning projects, that are messy, difficult, dangerous and complex.

Accelerates understanding of complex concepts
Shortens learning curve and builds teacher confidence to deliver standards aligned projects that convey concepts in unique and memorable ways.

Creates unique collaboration opportunities
Perfect for team projects and brainstorming.

“Seeing a heart and its functionality in 3D offered students a more realistic view versus seeing pictures in a textbook or watching a video online. In a 3D reality, students were able to virtually dissect the heart and carefully examine each part”.

Karen Wilson - STEM Coach, Los Altos School District

“Using zSpace in our FabLab will give students a head start toward a career in IT or engineering. Students will now have the opportunity to use the latest technologies to create and test a prototype for their solution, in a process that mirrors what takes place here in the Silicon Valley”.

Wanny Hersey - Superintendent / Principal, Bullis Charter School

“We understand that each student has a unique way of learning, this is especially true in abstract and complex topics such as chemistry or microbiology. With zSpace, we are working to make learning and applying STEM concepts engaging for all our students”.

Jeffrey Baier - Superintendent, Los Altos School District
