The use of stereoscopic displays to educate students on the complex subjects of science and health holds great promise. Traditionally, students have not been easily able to visualize concepts using standard textbooks, and stereo displays fill a role that will allow these students a greater insight to the materials that often have gone misunderstood. Often, science is portrayed by artists who may not understand the science and thus misrepresent the subject matter, or by the scientist who is not capable of rendering images of a complex nature with the artist's technical ability. The technologies used to create and display stereoscopic content are becoming increasingly economically feasible and user friendly. The end result of this situation will be to permit a more fascinating, accurate, and dynamic learning environment that can be available to anyone interested in exploring science and health.
