Expand what’s possible in your classroom

Imagine taking your students to the top of Machu Picchu, sending a whirling tornado through their desks, or helping them share their own stories with classmates. With virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), you can add a new dimension to your curriculum.

Create an interactive, virtual environment

Expeditions, Google's virtuality reality app, lets you create an interactive, virtual environment for your students to explore. Or give your students the tools to create their own VR experiences.

Bring abstract concepts to life

Give students a peek inside an ancient Egyptian tomb. Or take them on a tour of the solar system. With augmented reality, it’s now possible to bring virtual items into your classroom.
