SMSEC gives education a virtual element

Most of us think about museums as dark stuffy buildings filled with numerous static exhibitions, stuck in glass cabinets. But not Egypt’s Susan Mubarak Scientific Exploration Centre.

Most of us think about museums as dark stuffy buildings filled with numerous static exhibitions, stuck in glass cabinets.

However, Egypt’s Susan Mubarak Scientific Exploration Centre (SMSEC) museum is looking to increase the educational content and interaction of its exhibits with the deployment of a Virtual Reality Centre from SGI.

“This is the first museum in Egypt, and in the Middle East, that allows visitors to actually experience [situations] as a means of learning more about a particular subject,” said Peter Gebara, business development manager with Dubai-based SGI.

Artificial Environment

The VR centre will enable students to be completely immersed within an artificial environment.

For example, some of the applications will enable students to travel into different body systems and explore the various bodily functions.

A historical application will enable students to walk through ancient Egyptian civilisations.

Other applications allow students to have a close encounter with outer space and meet an atom.
