Oculus Glasses Help Students Travel Through Time and Space
This is the image for the news article titled Oculus Glasses Help Students Travel Through Time and SpaceThe fruits of another Innovation Grant are already being enjoyed by LCS students! Ms. Edwards applied for an Innovation Grant to supply her class with the real and virtual experiences they need to understand the biomes they learn about in science class. She observed that students found it challenging to imagine biomes unlike the ones they have encountered personally, so LCS has supplied her with 5 sets of Oculus glasses that will allow students to make virtual visits to the rainforest, the tundra, or extend their learning to social studies class and visit ancient civilizations. These are virtual reality headsets that allow students to navigate a 3D virtual space.

Following their classroom lessons, students will also have the opportunity to visit the Carolina Raptor Center to learn about how birds of prey are also affected by their environments. Ms. Edwards’ hope is that “Both of these activities together would cultivate a deeper understanding of exactly how big and diverse our world is and how important it is to protect it.”
