Students in the Skills and Achievement Work Program received a firsthand look at the world of virtual technology while visiting Molloy College's Media Department.

The meeting was part of the students’ ongoing career exploration series in conjunction with the Rebecca Center for Music Therapy. Molloy professor Jamie Cohen led the activity, teaching students how to operate Oculus Rift, a virtual reality system that immerses users in VR worlds.

After trying on a virtual reality headset, one student said, "I want to create a video game where people can experience what it is like to have a disability." This student just may be able to create that game, thanks to the advances in technology now available.
