This interactive simulator let's you experience what it feels like to be at the helm of a large research vessel and steer it through Yaquina Bay. 

Its 180-degree view even creates the illusion for users that they are experiencing waves rocking the boat. This simulator is part of a larger exhibit about Oregon State University's new research ship, the Taani - a 199-foot vessel currently being built in Louisiana.

This video provides a glimpse into the RCRV exhibit.
