The Amazing Class VR Headset Experience!

Trying out the new Virtual Reality (VR) headsets this week! Wow! What an experience we had visiting the Solar System and Mars in particular.... some of the comments the class made afterwards (on Google Classroom reviews) are below. So glad you enjoyed it! (Not included all comments as some were very similar).


It is fun and good you can do so much great stuff like be in an ocean with sharks! Or view the solar system and all the planets I’ve never seen before; it’s like being God!



It was a one of a kind experience!



It is funny when you see other people all looking around themselves, but it is sooo cool what you see when you are wearing them so I don’t mind!

The VR headset should be everywhere.



It was awesome!

The VR was amazing because it felt so realistic, especially when you were in the solar system.



It’s like a whole new world!



Honestly the entire experience was good. I would 100% recommend this VR Headset.



I thought that it was amazing! I absolutely loved when I was next to Curiosity! (The Mars Rover) It was just GREAT!



Oh YES it was good!  It was one of the best experiences of my life!



It was absolutely phenomenal and a great experience for me. I would recommend this to EVERYONE!



It was very exciting and fun; it was amazing when we saw the Mars Rovers. It was really entertaining. I had a lovely time watching the amazing videos. We are very so grateful to have these amazing VR headsets . It was so funny when my friends were moving their heads around trying to touch the objects. We loved this experience!



The VR was amazing, it was like it was actually happening in the room!
