Warning: App may cause motion sickness. Take your race car through the Neon Pulse Jaguar Alley if you think you know enough about biochemistry to fuel your car. Wait? You don’t. Easy, just travel with Steve to the Wisconsin Cheese Factory and learn how HUGE blocks of cheese are created through biochemistry. And Wendy the Science Teacher...well, you’ve never seen her like this as she teaches about laughing gas. When you put on the headset, you enter our virtual chemistry lab. You can spend time playing with test tubes, watching animations or exit through one of two doors and head out on a field trip or with Wendy the Science Teacher (by the way, Wendy was national runner-up teacher of the year on ABC Television, so she knows her stuff). When was the last time you sat down and read a virtual reality comic book? Never? Well, two of the pioneers in biochemistry, Pasteur and Roux, have an amazing story of discovery that is told through the pages of a virtual comic book (by the way, when you’re in the comic book room, be sure to adjust the radio to the station you want to listen to). Did you know the sun throws off massive solar flares that come screaming at earth? It’s true. Enter our liquid surround display to immerse yourself in a room of sun flares, chemistry, animations and so much more. If there is a more immersive way to learn, we can’t imagine what it would be.
What’s new in this version
Minor updates to comic and Neon Pulse.
- Race your car through Jaguar Alley in our Neon Pulse all-immersive racing world.
- Step back in time and read a comic book about the amazing path of discovery Pasteur & Roux took as they opened up the world of biochemistry.
- National runner-up teacher of the year, Wendy Martin, teaches us about laughing gas...what fun!
- Surround yourself in our liquid surround display as you learn about the massive solar flares the sun is hurtling at the Earth.
- For teachers, each unit is fun and immersive, but also tied to Next Gen Science Standards.
- Think cheese is stinky? Take a field trip to a Wisconsin cheese factory where some of the best cheese makers in the world teach us how they use biochemistry to produce HUGE cheese blocks.
- This unit is taught in the virtual chemistry lab where you can play with test tubes or teleport to a virtual field trip.
