Jeffrey Pomerantz will be speaking at the MuseumNext Digital Summit 2024:

Immersive Gamification for Student Engagement

We present NCMA Explore, a project to develop virtual field trips to the past, enabling users to explore historically accurate reconstructions of ancient sites as they existed in their prime, from a variety of ancient cultures, and featuring 3D scans of culturally appropriate objects placed in context.

We invite you to re-imagine the museum exhibit: a space for visitors to engage with a curated set of artifacts, yes, but also a space for visitors to experience and interact with artifacts – and indeed, with entire cultural complexes – in ways that are simply not possible in the physical world.
