Then see if you think this could be the reason that most of the World’s giant tech companies are in California.

Centre VR is unique in The World, offering 30 stations of the best in Virtual Reality equipment to enable entire classes of all age ranges to experience, learn in, learn about, and use, VR today.

The Vision

Centre VR has a vision to provide the school children and students of the region the ability to experience one of the most engaging forms of education that technology offers today – Virtual Reality.

The ability to transport students to a world where anything can be done is extremely powerful. The virtual reality can become a time machine. It can place students at the very heart of an event in any time period, immersed in their surroundings. Gravity can be controlled, a vacuum created, space travel and travel around the world can be accomplshed in seconds. The possibilities are endless.

We can also help the students to learn about the technology behind VR and show them the possibilities it offers in the future. We can show how the business world has truly ebraced VR right now.

Most Universities around the world, including Bournemouth University, offer courses on how to create virtual reality using specialist software.


The hardware technology provides the platfrom, but of course, the software is extremely important.

Centre VR is working with the leading, publicly listed, award winning and most famous innovator in the sector – Immersive VR Education.

The Apollo 11 and Titanic VR experiences are two of their very best educational titles that we showcase, but the company have also developed ENGAGE. This groundbreaking title will offer teachers the tools they need to create their own engaging lessons in VR, similar to creating a PowerPoint presentation, but so much more immersive and memorable. A true experience, shared by the whole class.

Cente VR is pleased to be one of the first locations in the world to offer an entire class of 30 students the oppurtunity to share a lesson in VR together.


Centre VR uses the very best VR technology available, the HTC Vive Pro, an amazing headset and tracking system that boasts extremely high resolution images (75% more pixels than its closest rival), superior comfort, high quality spatial audio, and the ability for the user to walk around and interact in the virtual world. It also requires a powerful computer to run the demanding requirements of VR, tracking hardware and bluetooth controllers.

The precision of the tracking is unprecedented, allowing students to interact wih the virtual environentt fully.

Our comprehensive communications systems includes wireless audio headsets that allows teachers to walk around the participating students, watching their activites on the surrounding monitors. Although many titles are individual, simultaneous launching can put all students into the same environment with communication between them.
