Taking Coding to a New Reality... A Virtual Reality

Help me give my students a Oculus Quest to see their self-created programming in virtual reality and give them an out of this world (virtual world) application coding experience.

My Students

The students I work with are very excited about learning and curious about the world around them (especially anything involving STEM). My students love educational technology, and it is one of my passions as an educator. Based in a small city in South Jersey, my public elementary school is a diverse community of learners. From many different cultural, socioeconomic, and language backgrounds, we share our many different experiences with each other. Our student population includes many high-needs learners, and over ninety percent of our student population qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch due to the families' low socioeconomic status.

Most of my classes throughout the day are inclusion classes, and it is great to see all of my students collaborating and having fun using technology together!

Despite the difficulties my students endure in and out of the classroom, they truly enjoy coming to school. It is great to see all of my students collaborating and having fun working together! The best way to do this is with technology and your help.

My Project

The VR Oculus Quest is an all inclusive virtual reality system used for student to visit, code with Unity, and experience places they normally wouldn't be able to. My students will write software (coding and programming) that will be designed for the VR space and run their coding and programming on the Oculus Quest. They will debug, install, and test their software on the Oculus Quest. Students will use different applications to visit far away destinations and explore these places as if they were there.

Students using VR experiences as a learning tool, reach a deeper understanding of what they are learning.

and they are able to visually see all aspects and experience what somebody there would experience.

I want my students to experience where you could write code on the headset and in the meantime see the results of the code in real time using Oculus Quest.
