The Elon iMedia graduate program requires all students to complete a thesis project. I knew when I entered the program in July of 2019 that I wanted to challenge myself and take on a VR project. I realized that I could combine my VR idea with my passion for education, and decided that I would create an educational VR game. By working with an astronomy professor at Elon University, I was able to create a prototype of The Winter Circle VR game, which is a game that teaches users about the stars and constellations in the Winter Circle using gamification techniques. I also created a website to house this project.
