      EVENT DETAILS
      Virtual Reality Sea Level Rise Explorer

      Santa Cruz Public Library is excited to announce a new (and limited time) opportunity to experience state-of-the-art Virtual Reality (VR) and learn about Santa Cruz's future coastline management plans.

      We hope you will join us for this unique experience!

      Please see the following details...



      Where
      Downtown Library Branch, 244 Church Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95060

      When
      The Sea Level Rise Explorer Virtual Reality experience will be available starting November 18, 2019 and running through February 2020.

      What
      The Sea Level Rise Explorer is a virtual reality experience designed to immerse users in modeled representations of how sea level rise impacts, such as coastal flooding and coastal erosion, might affect the beaches and bluffs in Santa Cruz. The experience will be available in both English and Spanish. This project was funded by a grant from the American Geophysicist's Union and supplements a Coastal Commission grant supporting community engagement for the Resilient Coast Santa Cruz Initiative. The project is a collaboration between Santa Cruz Public Libraries, City of Santa Cruz, Virtual Planet Technologies, with support form Swan Dive Media.

      How
      Visit the downtown library's information desk and inquire about participation. Library staff will assist you with the simple process, which takes approximately 10 minutes.

      Please Note: The Oculus Quest equipment used for this project requires users to be at least 13 years of age. A valid photo ID or library card is also required to participate. Minors ages 13-17 years of age will need a parent's signature for the liability waiver.

      Next
      Future versions of the Sea Level Rise Explorer will be available as a free download at the Oculus Store and as a free mobile phone application. For more information about building a climate resilient future coastline, visit the Resilient Coast Santa Cruz Initiative website.
