Building a History



Ever wish you could time-travel to explore Mill Valley as it was in the past? Marin high school students are helping to make that possible. The M.V. Public Library, in partnership with the nonprofit TimeWalk.org, has launched a new technology internship where students participate in building a virtual version of Mill Valley circa early 1920s. The three-month program encourages students to do hands-on local history research and learn both SketchUp 3-D modeling software and Unity virtual reality technology, through a series of free classes. Supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, the program is guided by TimeWalk.org founder and developer Ted Barnett, 3-D modeling educator Mark Gerhard, and Unity game developer Eric Boise. The library is also partnering with Tam High School’s Applied Technology department to involve additional students.
