in every field of EMPIRICAL science, there are tools. even
of course, in university students take laboratory classes.
laboaratory is not only expensive to conduct and teach but
very time in-elastic and very one off without room for as
much repractice as many people might need.
furthermore, field tools not used in the lab are often only
taught to people on field trips , themselves even more
the reality is that after schooling most scientists learn how
to use their tools on the job, experiment by experiment,
under the rubric of working in a lab or field research
I propose a website destination with two or three dimension
( occulus rift ) simulation of the tools used in EVERY type of
researchers can volunteer to help programmers develop
simulations for the simplest to the most sophisticated tools
used in laboratory and field settings.
slowly , the simulations provide a wholistic training regimen
for students who otherwise really have no access to lab or
field education, let alone access to the actual tools or to the
actual circumstances under which said tools are generally
the goal is to help prepare people for using tools of research
and observation in advance of actually using them. side
benefits will inevitably result from attempting to achieve
