Virtual Science

My Students

I work in a large junior high made up of just 2 grade levels. We have a large population of ESL, SPED, and general population students.

The demographics of my classes are 50-70% ESL students.

We have limited technology at my campus and limited opportunities for the students to explore the digital world. Currently we share 1 vr headset that I purchased with my last phone upgrade. I have 30 students in a class and not enough time for all.

My Project

Using the VR Headsets, students will have the opportunity to experience things just out of our reach like, space, the depths of the ocean, and the inside of a volcano. Explore the systems of the Human Body from the inside on a virtual tour and visit the aftermath of a tornado from the safety of our classroom.

The VR Headsets will give my students the chance to explore and learn in the digital world that is growing around us.

Making the abstract concepts that we learn more concrete and hands on. My campus has little technology avaliable for atudent use. With the VR headsets students will have the chance to explore the different biomes of the world through 360 degree photos that make you fell as though you are standing in them. I want to give my students the opportunity of a lifetime from our classroom and get them interested in Science for Life!
