Friday, 2nd December Year 9 students experienced learning Science and Geography topics through compelling virtual reality apps for education. Students were given the opportunity to go on field trips or expeditions to the North Pole, The Amazon, even an Ocean Safari and Coral Reef without living their classrooms.
As students looked into the virtual worlds through their Google cardboards they were guided by their teacher as if on real tours.
Students had a fabulous time as lessons were brought to life.
