As a research-based non-profit organization, STEM-VRSE exists to support researchers’ integration of VR and 360 technologies in research. In addition to supporting researchers, we promote education by working within formal and informal learning environments to support current STEM educators and capture the attention of future scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians.


The goals of STEM-VRSE center on two groups of actors identified in the organization’s mission, namely actors associated with either STEM research or STEM education. In doing so, STEM-VRSE seeks to identify, train, and engage with those actors likely to make significant impacts in using VR and 360 technologies in research or education.
