    In this session, speakers will discuss the power of immersive visualization to promote innovative science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education initiatives. Using the Mars City Facility Ops Challenge case study, speakers will show how information within Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be integrated into virtual reality. They will share insights gained, while creating an immersive environment for a visionary organization, using Revit software, Autodesk LIVE, and Stingray game engine. Mars City (founded by the National Institute of Building Sciences to recruit a new generation of professionals to work with high-performance buildings) uses BIM and facility maintenance tools to manage a virtual base on Mars. KieranTimberlake enhanced the curriculum using an immersive environment to engage students with hands-on learning opportunities, playing out scenarios in virtual reality. Speakers will highlight challenges and opportunities captured in the case study, as well as broader applications of the workflow in architectural visualization, facilities management, and education. This session features Revit, Autodesk LIVE, and Autodesk Stingray. AIA Approved
