As a graduate student, I had the privilege of collaborating with the Whitman County Historical Society on a project that aimed to bring the past to the future through digital reconstruction and virtual access. The nonprofit’s mission is one that deeply resonated with me, and I jumped at the opportunity to volunteer my time and skills to make a difference in my community.
I worked to create a digital reconstruction of various historical society buildings, providing visitors with a virtual tour of the facilities. By leveraging XR learning, we were able to create an interactive experience that brought the history of Whitman County to life, allowing visitors to explore and learn about the area’s rich cultural heritage.
I’m incredibly proud of our work on this project, and I believe it stands as a testament to the power of technology in preserving our cultural history. By providing virtual access to these historical sites, we can ensure that they remain relevant and accessible for generations to come, fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of our shared past.
Working on this project was rewarding to experience for me, and I feel honored to have had the opportunity to contribute to the Whitman County Historical Society’s mission.
