Student Exemplars

Browse through our collection of simulations, virtual environments, 3D models, and other solutions created by high school students. The exemplars provide example solutions to challenge problems, and also demonstrate just how much students can achieve using technology to solve real world problems.


United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM) Training Simulation

Students collaborated with mentors to build an instructional training simulation tool to train USAFSAM critical care air transport (CCAT) students on the MedSystem III © IV pump.  The goals were to use game-based technology to create an interactive simulation of the equipment and to apply educational techniques to teach and assess students’ proficiency on the equipment.  This training simulation tool was developed in Unity and the scripting language used was C#.

Model of IMPACT Portable Suction Unit


Eldora Speedway Virtual Environment

Students created a virtual environment to allow patrons of Eldora Speedway to view seating options and facility layout.  The goal for this effort was to allow Eldora to host the virtual environment capability on their website so that patrons could explore the facility in advance of arriving on site.  This virtual environment was build using the Unity engine.

3D Modeling Using Kinect

Students created 3D models using scanning technology to explore the possibility of rapid 3D model generation.  These models were created using the Kinect sensor and the Skanect software.  This virtual environment was built using the Kinect hardware.

Model of People

Model of Motor Render


GRILL® Facility Design

Students leveraged architect renderings of a new facility design and generated a textured 3D model to illustrate the plan for the space.  This was accomplished using Unity.

Model of a Common Area

Model of a Meeting Area

Model of Workspace


Fire Evacuation Simulation 

Students evaluated four game engines to select a cost effective and usable engine for a capstone project for a high school modeling and simulation survey course.  They built a school with a staircase, script fire, smoke, alarm sounds, and non-player characters evacuating from the facility.  Students learned about the capabilities and feasibility of each of the game engines through their hands-on evaluation.

Full Throttle Karting – 3D Modeling and Hardware Integration

Students updated the layout of the go karting track and fully integrated a go kart for physical control of the simulation and use of a virtual reality headset.
