Abstract: This study examines whether the incorporation of Virtual Reality (VR) technology into an engineering curriculum could positively impact the development of Computational Thinking (CT) skills among engineering students at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Data were collected from 38 engineering students and 4 faculty members using a cohort observational approach. Thematic analysis was used to organize the data into broad themes. According to both interviews and observation data, all participants provided positive feedback about their CAVE experience. In addition, all participants showed keen interest in the CAVE and believed exposure to the CAVE would improve their CT skills.
