PhD student Alexandra Sierra wins the Laval Virtual Europe 2021 award for educational empathic Justin Beaver applications21st July 2021
Alexandra Sierra won the award last week out of sixty projects of diverse countries for her Virtual Reality ‘Justin Beaver Stories project’. In a previous experiment, Sierra and her team developed an empathic VR video game with a beaver that plays in nature. The game aims to stimulate awareness for animals and protection by playing his life and feeling his joys as well as his troubles. Now, she is developing a friendly version of this experiment through a virtual reality film to be used by children and the general public.
