‘Virtual Reality Inside Our Science’ workshop for key stage 3

Limited availability for Key stage 3 virtual reality and biology workshop, in your school – “Virtual Reality Inside Our Science”

Using smartphones, dive inside the world of science, taking a look at the technology behind virtual reality, and the world it creates. Pupils will first learn about the technology in their phones and the different types of virtual reality, and then use our basic VR glasses to experience it through videos and apps. This session will focus on areas of biology, such as cell structure and the human body. Other bioscience topics are possible with advance notice, and wider areas of STEM will be available in 2018

The class will need to use their own smartphones (one per 3 pupils minimum) and ideally have access to wifi.
