Mark your calendars for the NIH Research Festival! On September 13 and 14, the NIH Library will be participating in the Festival by highlighting Virtual Reality (VR) and 3D Printing as two of the innovative technologies we make available to support research at NIH.
Join us in the NIH Library for some (educational) fun on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons during the Research Festival as we offer demonstrations of virtual reality and 3D printing.
- Immerse yourself in VR headsets and experience first-hand how virtual reality can enhance your basic or clinical research. We think you will like what you see…or, at least, what you think you are seeing. Demonstrations will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- 3D printing is changing how we do science by empowering investigators to create their own custom-made lab tools. Dream it; code it; print it.
These demonstrations will be available in the NIH Library on Wednesday, September 14 and Thursday, September 15, 12–5 p.m. The NIH Library is just around the corner from the Masur Auditorium and the FAES Terrace. Please stop by on your way to or from the Research Festival events.
In addition to the demonstrations in the NIH Library, we will also have a table at the Special Exhibits on Resources for Intramural Research in the Building 10 South Lobby on all three days of the Festival (see the General Schedule of Events page for specific times: https://researchfestival.nih.gov/2017/general-schedule-events.) Stop by to learn more about the Library’s extensive resources and services.
We look forward to seeing you there!
