Step into a VR lab in this Bucknell Cool Class.

When Quinn Grossman '19 steps into his General Chemistry lab, he knows exactly what he needs to do. That's because the neuroscience major from Sewell, N.J., has been there before — not in real life, but in virtual reality.

In order to better prepare students to succeed in their experiments, instructors in this foundational chemistry course developed a series of VR videos, allowing their students to watch the experiments they'll perform at a virtual lab bench before they get there in real life. Watch Grossman and his classmates take part in these experiments — real and simulated — in this Cool Classes video.
