Virtual Reality Field Trips

Help me give my students a virtual field trip activity to help enforce NGSS science concepts in the classroom!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are hardworking and caring individuals. They have shown respect for each other and other teachers, and work very hard on their studies. This group of 6th graders will benefit tremendously through the use of technology in the classroom. The students are in block scheduling, so the more I can get them out of their seats and moving the better. Which is why I do a lot of hands on minds on activities. The technology added to my classroom will help tremendously!

My Project

My students will be participating in VR field trips with Google Expeditions. I already have the goggles and such but I would love to provide them with the device and other materials such as the router and charging ports listed in my materials.

We are requesting materials to help build a Google Expeditions kit so that students can take Virtual Reality field trips!

The chargers will be used to charge devices once I am able to get them and the router will be used to help connect devices onto the same WIFI network, so that the Google Expeditions app will function properly.

Thank you for considering this awesome opportunity.

Grades 6-8
