Immersive VR education
Immersive VR Education is a start-up company who are focused on educating students through the medium of virtual reality using Oculus technology.
Learn through experience
Students typically remember 10% of what they read and only 30% of what they hear after a 2 week period. However students remember 90% of what they experience. Their motto is Learn Through Experience and Virtual Reality is the only medium that can achieve this type of realism to have a lasting effect on its users.
The person who finally gets to walk on mars for the first time is alive today (likely some 10 year old kid ) and when asked the question why did they want to become an astronaut they answer “because I experienced the Apollo 11 Mission in Virtual Reality at my school and it made me believe anything is possible”.
Allowing students to experience events of the past for themselves and teaching them in this way will have more of an impact on their knowledge retention than traditional mediums.
Their mission is to allow children learn through experience and they are currently on Kickstarter having reached €10,000 of our €30,000 goal in 7 days. Click here.
