How VR activities at summer camps, can really be a game changer

Virtual Reality is considered as one of the most significant technology tools for research and education. So much so that tech giants like Microsoft, Apple, and Facebook are investing huge amounts of capital into research and application in these areas. Therefore getting kids to experience VR early, helps ensure that they stay on the cutting edge of STEM education, and this, in turn, sets them up on an educational path that’s innovative and future-ready.

Students are interested in Virtual Reality because, quite simply, it’s all around them. Virtual reality typically incorporates auditory and video feedback, but may also allow other types of sensory and force feedback through haptic technology. Video games, mobile apps, and more, with which students use to interact quite frequently, are more often sporting VR capabilities. The number of active Virtual Reality users has increased from 0.2 million to more than 150 million in just five years, and these numbers show no sign of slowing down.

5 Advantages of using Virtual Reality in Learning and Development for Summer Camps:

Experiential Learning

In education, learning with imagination matters. Knowledge feeds the imagination. With a VR headset, students can experience and visualize various educational concepts from ancient history to futuristic technology. It creates a fun and effective learning environment – a perfect tool for Summer Camps.

Increased Engagement

Virtual Reality (VR) experience takes place within simulated and immersive environments that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. By using Virtual Reality, students can easily see objects in three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which can be explored and interacted and not just imagined. This resonates well with students and keeps them engaged completely.

Work Doesn’t Feel Like Work

When learning becomes fun, productivity takes shape. Productivity leads to development. Camp organizers can genuinely accomplish educating students in complex concepts such as designing, programming, and STEM subjects by using engaging VR content.

Breaks Geographic and Time Barriers

Virtual Reality media content breaks all geographic and time barriers. It is a language of visuals. A language understood by one and all. Take summer camp participants on Virtual Tours across the world and in to space to explore the past, present and the future.

Higher Scope

The brain tends to remember 10% of what it reads, 20% of what it hears, and 90% of what it does or simulates. By adding Virtual Reality as a supplementary technology to your existing, bring Summer Camps to life and improve learning outcomes.
