Unreal Engine busses kids to Mars
Aerospace specialist and weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin, has used Epic’s Unreal Engine to create a virtual field trip to Mars for schoolchildren, as part of its Generation Beyond project.The project aims to encourage children’s in STEM subjects. As the bus moves, specially created windows which show the Mars landscape, make the students feel like they’re driving across the red planet by showing 200 square miles of its surface.
The high-tech vehicle will tour the US to give students from different regions a chance to try it out. The company is also providing a free deep space curriculum to all middle school teachers and has released an app that sends real-time Mars weather reports.
