Virtual Reality in your Classroom

Virtual Reality in education can help students gain a deeper understanding of the world around them and ignite their imagination. Our Virtual Reality sessions allow you to take your class to another planet and back again without even leaving the classroom. Your students will be engaged and inspired by breath-taking scenes from around the world, gain an understanding of physics by flying a balloon into the stratosphere, experience the lunar landscape like never before, explore the human body and many more immersive experiences.

The focus of our classroom Virtual Reality experience can be tailored to meet the needs of a wide range of curriculum areas. Some examples are shown below:

English

Visit a new location such as a beach, an iceberg or a jungle then write a descriptive narrative based on the experience. Students are encouraged to see what is around them and think about how it makes them feel

Maths

Visit the Pyramids in Egypt to seek out shapes in the landscape. Use Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate the circumference of the London Eye, with a more realistic idea of how big it really is.

Science

Travel inside a human body and observe how the heart, lungs, ears and digestive system perform crucial tasks to keep us alive. Or maybe take a look at Earth and the solar system from Space to get an idea of the scale of our planet, the Solar system and even the Milky Way.

Geography

See the various biomes across the world. Compare the conditions and biodiversity in each. Travel down a selection of rivers from the Amazon, to the Moskva or even the Thames. Or maybe explore a selection of volcanos from Indonesia, Russia, Ethiopia, Iceland, and the United States.

History

Visit famous historical landmarks to get a feeling of what it was like to live in that time. Walk around the trenches of World War I or explore one of many museums without leaving the classroom.

RE

Visit a range of temples and places of religious significance such as the Taj Mahal or Jerusalem.

Art

Visit Galleries and Museums or explore Street Art. Draw a recreation of an underwater scene.

Music

Go on a tour of a recording studio or look at the cultural history of Jazz.

ICT/Computing

See what it's like to work for a technology company or how technological projects are brought together.

Careers

Take a look inside the workplaces of various professionals.

THE AMAZON RAINFOREST, ANTARCTICA, THE GRAND CANYON, THE HUMAN HEART, THE MOON AND EVEN MARS ARE JUST A FEW OF THE ENDLESS POSSIBLE EXPERIENCES AVAILABLE. YOU CAN EVEN CREATE YOUR EXPERIENCE BY DISCUSSING YOUR CURRICULUM NEEDS WITH OUR VR EXPERTS.
