Earth Science students are seeing stars – in 3D

“What we’ll be using is the HTTC Vive, which is one of the kinds of goggles you can use for virtual reality,” said Dr. John Tacinelli, describing new virtual reality lab technology RCTC is using thanks to a grant from Minnesota State.

Yellowjackets fall short

RCTC’s Isiah Walker (21) and Lane Canny (19) nearly block a punt during a Minnesota College Athletic Conference Eastern Division quarterfinal game against Mesabi Range Community and Technical College on Oct. 29 at the Rochester Regional Sport Stadium. The Norsemen, the No. 3 seed in the East Division, defeated the Yellowjackets, the No. 2 seed, 30-19. RCTC had defeated Mesabi Range when they met during the regular season. The Norseman benefited from two big plays — a 94-yard pass play and 92-yard punt return to pull off the upset.  RCTC finishes the season with a 6-3 won-lost record for the second year in a row. The Yellowjackets won six straight MCAC titles from 2010 to 2015.
