Virtual Jane Project

Virtual Jane Project
Help build a virtual reality app for Jane Goodall!

Come build a virtual reality app for a great cause with the GW Innovation Center!

The Virtual Jane project tells the story of Jane Goodall (primatologist, conservationist, and childhood hero) in a virtual reality mobile application. We’re working with the Jane Goodall Institute to create an immersive educational and recreation experience for Jane’s expansive audience.

This semester, we’re focused on rapid prototyping and curriculum development. Here’s how you can help:

  • Prototype and animate in A-Frame, Google Blocks, Maya, & Unity
  • Learn everything Jane, then design stories, scripts, and scenes to teach visitors through her story
  • Work with faculty and students from a variety of disciplines to incorporate Virtual Jane in GWU coursework

If you’re interested in joining an agile student-led team working out of GW’s new maker space in Tompkins M06, check out our website for more information. The Fall ’18 application deadline is September 21st – after that date, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.


Help us extend Jane’s legacy in conservationism and gain hands-on experience with emerging tech along the way!
