After viewing this short video clip from the BBC’s 1969 Panorama programme you may better understand that it’s no coincidence that the worlds largest tech companies are based in California.
Centre VR is unique, offering 30 stations of the best in virtual reality equipment, enabling entire classes of all age ranges to experience, learn in, and learn about, virtual reality.
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. 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 accomplished in seconds. The possibilities are endless. Covid does not exist within the virtual world.
Centre VR can also help students to learn about the technology behind VR, showing the possibilities it offers for the future. We can provide examples of how the modern business world has truly embraced the technology.
Many universities around the world, including Bournemouth University, offer courses on how to create virtual reality titles using specialist software.
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. The company has also developed ENGAGE. This groundbreaking platform offers teachers the tools required to create their own VR lessons, in a similar way to creating PowerPoint presentations. These lessons would be far more immersive and memorable, and a true shared experience across a whole class. Remote speakers can be introduced, and the company hopes to organise famous and recognised leaders in various topics to guest within Engage in the future.
Centre VR is pleased to be one of the first locations in the world to offer an entire class of 30 students to have the opportunity to share a lesson in VR together using this platform.
Centre VR uses the very best VR technology available, the HTC Vive Pro, Oculus Rift S, Samsung Odyssey Plus and Oculus Quest headsets. Centre VR has more than 30 high spec PC’s to ensure the experiences are the best possible.
Our comprehensive communications systems includes wireless audio only headsets that allow teachers to freely walk around the participating students, watching their activities on the surrounding monitors. Although the students may be immersed in individual titles, they are all able to hear each other, as well as the teachers, allowing full instruction and interaction to take place in a lesson.
