NISD: Virtual tour of Lance Thompson Elementary now available
Students from Northwest ISD’s Cox and J.C. Thompson elementary schools provided trustees with a virtual tour of the district’s upcoming Lance Thompson Elementary School at the May 29 school board meeting, and that tour is now also available online.
The student tour guides provided trustees with pairs of virtual reality goggles that allowed them to look over the new school in 3D. The presentation was supported by Huckabee, the architect that designed the new school.
Community members can view the virtual reality presentation themselves by clicking here. The presentation is best viewed on a smartphone, as it will use the device’s accelerometer and gyroscope to position the view of the screen, which can be rotated to rotate the 3D presentation.
Lance Thompson Elementary School is located in the Harvest master-planned community and is scheduled to open before the start of the 2019-20 school year. Ground work on the school site is slated to begin in the coming weeks.
