In recent years, new opportunities emerged with the development of "virtual reality" to do experimental research in the so-called "Immersive Virtual Environments", virtual worlds, in which persons have the feeling of "being there". In this research-oriented seminar, students interested in current research and the experimental method, have the opportunity to discuss their own critical and advanced scientific ideas. There is the opportunity for participants of an introduction to virtual reality software "Vizard" and the VR hardware "Power Wall" as well as to test the VR goggles "Oculus Rift".
