Experiencing a Day in the Army's Boots

High school Atoms experience a day in the U.S. Army’s boots through virtual reality and a variety of simulation systems

Thursday, November 14, 2019With a little help from the U.S Army, high school Atoms not only experience a day in their boots through virtual reality and simulation, but they also discover what is their ‘warrior.’ Atoms were able to experience six different adventures in the self contained simulation system.

  • Oculus Rift Virtual Reality System
  • M4 Laser-Shot Simulator
  • Apache Flight Simulator
  • EOD Interactive Robotic Arm Simulator

In addition, there were two touch screen computers complete with career navigation capabilities, static displays and Army leadership, educational and career opportunities videos. Thank you, U.S. Army for visiting the Atoms and sharing the variety of opportunities and career paths within this branch of the military. To view more pictures please visit our Facebook page.
