QUT Sphere - It's here!

QUT has welcomed students this week to its new, state-of-the-art $94.4 million Education Precinct on the Kelvin Grove campus.

The Precinct provides contemporary flexible and technology-equipped teaching spaces, and its centrepiece is the Sphere -- a five-metre diameter LED globe suspended over two floors which is complemented by a 4.8 metre-wide interactive digital wall screen.

The Sphere and digital touchscreen will be learning and teaching tools, with a changing menu of innovative and interactive content.

The first Sphere program was developed by QUT teacher education and early childhood researchers in collaboration with QUT’s Visualisation and eResearch (ViseR) team.

It demonstrates the importance of the early years in brain development and how everyday activities, play, games and reading fire activity in a child’s brain.
