Strap on the headset and enter a research lab at the edge of the mountains, in all its wild glory. This unit is about robots, robotics and with a little biodiversity thrown in. So what’s cool? Students will learn to program robots in the interactive Robolympiad. Enter instructions and see the path - ordered or crazy - your robot takes. Our field trip visits one of the top high school robotics team in the country as they build their robot and prepare for competition. In fact, we get into the cage with the robot as it takes it’s commands from the students and experience the robot up close. Sometimes humans get a little help from machines. Wendy Martin is our national runner-up teacher of the year and she explores the concept of prosthetics: artificial limbs and human parts. Then you will enter the liquid surround display as we learn the science behind helmets, why and how they protect our heads. Forces and physics are a key part of this 360 surround experience. As always, VictoryVR learning is fun, immersive and amazing. At the same time, our curriculum specialist is meticulous about making sure each lesson is tied to a national science standard as created through the Next Gen Science Standards. We have 48 units covering every area of middle and high school science. If you plan to learn science, might as well do it in virtual reality.
What’s new in this version
Minor aesthetic changes, bugs fixed in Robolympiad
- Learning about robots and robotics in science, might as well do it in full-surround virtual reality.
- Enter the Robolympiad as you program your personal robot to compete in the course. Program well, it’s an ordered path...program poorly and it’s chaos.
- Wendy, the Science Teacher, explores humans who sometimes need a little help from machines as she explores the wonderful world of prosthetics
- Enter the 360 experience of our liquid surround display as the science and physics of helmets is explored in a fascinating lessons of protecting the noggin.
- As always, every lesson is based on national science standards so that even though it’s fun and fascinating, deep learning is occurring.
