Wild Animals in VR

Wild Animals in VR

Be one of the first to experience our incredible new Virtual Reality workshop exploring the amazing animal kingdom.

Get up close with some fascinating, and occasionally terrifying, beasts! VR takes you on fully immersive journey up close with an animal from each of the classes.

Go on a hunt with an eagle swooping at a snow hare, a great tiger hunting an unsuspecting deer, a pit viper stalking a treefrog and a school of predatory tuna attacking a mackerel bait ball. The workshop includes plenty of curriculum points from the 'Living Things & Their Habitats' and 'Animals' objectives such as classification, camouflage, diet and habitats, teeth and adaptation. Children are amazed at the action and wonder of the CGI whilst absorbing interesting facts.

This is VR on another level, and the best part? No welfare issues with real animals being brought to school! 

Issues with live animals in schools are well documented*; there are risks to the children (of disease, injury, allergy and phobia), risks to the school (legal challenges, inadequate risk assessments) and of course, risks to the animals themselves (injury, stress, travelling conditions, noise and handling).

However, the benefits of learning about animals are also invaluable, such as compassion and understanding of conservation needs. The fabulous thing about our new workshops is all these benefits can be gained through immersive education in VR! Additionally, VR can get up close with exotic and dangerous creatures, and even X ray their physiology, for deeper understanding of the scientific concepts.   *Source: RSPCA, PETA and National Education Union
