Imagine a world where manufacturers train people in difficult or potentially risky tasks without putting them on the shop floor or in a dangerous environment.

Imagine a world where health professionals adapt new procedures “virtually” and patients learn treatments before they begin them.

Imagine a world where students discover the world without ever leaving the classroom.

Let us show you how all that and more is possible at the Grand Opening of Eastern Iowa Community Colleges’ EON Reality Interactive Digital Center.
