Students at L.M.S. simply don't have the ability to have the same experiences as students that don't come from poverty. My students need to see the things that we study. They need to go to museums and zoos. They need to see things that are outside their current scope. We study ecosystems and land forms. My students don't have a frame of reference. Most of my students have never been outside of a 30 mile area. We will use these headsets to allow students to get to see different animals, how the Earth changes, how Scientists in the Antarctica work. How do women in the STEM fields work? What are their options if they remain dedicated to their education? I believe that virtual reality will open a whole new world to our students. For each unit that we cover, our students will be able to actually see what they should be learning. When we classify matter, the students will be able to see giant magnets picking up cars. Students will be able to be inside power stations to see the difference between conducting and insulating electricity. My students will be able to see the coral reefs bleaching and will be able to see the difference of the reefs over time. Students will be able to see the inside of the space station and the NASA control center. My students need to know about food webs. Our students will be able to see what the difference is between the top consumers and producers of each ecosystem through virtual reality. Our students will be able to see what happens inside the National Weather Service during our unit that concerns weather and climate. The opportunities are endless with virtual reality.
