Virtual State Fair PDF Print E-mail

Home of Cooperative Extension in Second Life, established in February of 2008 to celebrate the official launch of eXtension. The fair became the hub of eXtension's work in Second Life, a combination of entertainment and informal education, just like a real fair. The fair contains a midway with rides, arcades, and games; an exhibition tent featuring Cooperative Extension communities of practice, and exhibit buiding with canned goods and quilts, a line dancing barn, farm animals, and educational displays. The fair hosts special events like scavenger hunts, musical performances, guest lecturers, and meetups. It is a gathering place for both the pubic and extension professionals. Sometimes there are fireworks!
