Virtual Reality Science Learning Festival – Liverpool

13th March 2017 @ 9:15 am - 4:00 pm

What is a VR Science Learning Festival?

Tablet Academy are keen to introduce practical VR learning in schools. We therefore wish to offer schools, colleges and educational organisations the opportunity to take part in a FREE Virtual Reality Science Learning Festival. These events offer teachers and pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of activities linked to different areas of the curriculum including Science, Literacy, Humanities and Art.

Workshop Content:

Science in VR:

  • Dive deep inside the human body to see for yourself how amazing we really are.

  • Blast off into space to explore the Solar System and beyond.

  • Take a fascinating look at water on Earth, the essential resource for life.

Messy Science: Pupils will be given the opportunity to try some fun ‘messy science’ activities in between their virtual reality experiences.

The details…

The Festival programme is as follows:

  • The VR Learning Festivals are designed for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 students (Years 5,6,7 & 8).

  • The day is split into a morning and afternoon workshop, the same content is repeated in both workshops.

  • Workshop sessions are from – 9:15-11:45 and 13:15-16:00. Each workshop can accomodate a maximum of 6 schools.

  • Each attending school can send 1 member of staff and up to 5 pupils to participate in their selected workshop.

  • The workshops are led by consultants from the Tablet Academy and staff from Barlows Primary School who will guide staff and students through the circuit of activities allowing pupils to learn and teachers to observe as well as learn.
