Virtual Reality field trips on the timetable at Bilborough College
Students at Bilborough College took a 3D tour around the human body and brain, visited Iceland, the moon and Google headquarters without leaving their classrooms thanks to a series of virtual reality field trips.
The immersive experience was provided by Google Expeditions, which allows students to explore everywhere from Mars and the Great Barrier Reef to the inside of Buckingham Palace.
Google Expeditions provide a tablet for the teacher along with cardboard viewers and phones for every student.
Using an app on the tablet the teacher selects a destination and the entire classroom gets a 3D view of it through their cardboard viewer.
