Brookline Interactive Group (BIG) and its VR-in-the-Public-Interest project, the Public VR Lab, launched an innovative 360 video/VR immersive journalism collaboration with the #STAT team from the Boston Globe.

The two will be showing off their Virtual Reality reporting at Hubweek 2017 until Sunday.

Brookline citizen journalists from the STAT team trained Boston Globe journalists in immersive storytelling production techniques, and they will be working side-by-side with them to create three day-in-the-life 360 experiences of Boston’s science and medical world.

Visitors can go places where normally only doctors and scientists go: An infant trauma unit functioning under pressure at Boston’ s Children’s Hospital, the activities of a student at Tuft’s Dental School, the world’s leading Ebola scientists working in a lab here in Boston to make Ebola “happy” in order to study how it grows and spreads.

The collaborative will be at shipping Container #18 through Sunday.
