VI Formers Kyle Alday and David Bunn spent the past three weeks on Mars – virtually. For their senior project, they stitched together hundreds of photos taken by NASA's Mars Rover, Curiosity, to create twelve 360° panoramas of the planet. The students worked with Upper School science teacher Holly Golecki and Villanova University computer science professor Dr. Frank Klassner to create a three-dimensional "virtual tour" of Mars. In this blog post, they reflect on their work, the scope of the project, and the lessons they learned.
