“Virtual Reality” Becomes a Reality for West End House Young People

On Tuesday, February 23, sixteen West End House 1st through 6th toured the Multi Robot Systems Lab in the Engineering Product Innovation Center at Boston University. The Lab is a “playground” for graduate engineering, manufacturing, and robotics programs. Lead by Academic Support Coordinator Aaron Sarracino, and a diverse group of Boston University students, West End House children drove rovers, tested virtual reality headsets, and controlled a human-like robot.

Thanks to an exciting partnership with the Boston University Bioinformatics Department, West End House youth will return to Boston University monthly to explore STEM research in a hands-on way.
