Through The Ages: President Obama Celebrates America’s National Parks


Through the Ages: President Obama Celebrates America’s National Parks transports you on a journey to Yosemite with President Obama as he honors the legacy of our country’s national parks in the context of the National Parks Service Centennial. This first-ever virtual reality experience featuring a sitting President provides an up close and personal look at President Obama’s trip to Yosemite with his family over Father’s Day weekend. Follow along as he traverses the park, interacting with students during an event tied to his “Every Kid in the Park” initiative, and speaking with Don Neubacher, the Yosemite Superintendent.

What Works Well

This is one of the best 360° video experiences ever produced. Take in all of the beautiful sights and sounds of the Yosemite.

Level of Interactivity

What does this mean?
The Level of Interactivity indicates how many interactive features an experience has.

For instance, a Level 1 would be a more passive experience where you will be able to look around freely, but you will not be triggering or interacting with things in the environment.  A Level 2 will provide some level of interactivity but only very basically, such as being able to move between different scenes in the experience. A Level 3 will start to incorporate some more complex interactions using a remote or controller to trigger things within the scenes. A Level 4 would be a fully interactive experience but something you are still guided through. Finally, a Level 5 would be a fully interactive experience that gives you complete control of how to use it.
