5 amazing VR experiences inside Engage


Most of the time I'm talking about Engage, it's generally in relation to the #CPDinVR events (find them here) but the truth is that even though Engage is still in beta, you'd be hard put to find a VR app with such a wide range of amazing educational experiences. Engage is currently free to access and runs on Vive, Oculus or directly on a PC. This means that even schools with a single/limited number of VR headsets can access these amazing multi-user VR learning opportunities.

So what I've done is put a little video together highlighting five of my favourite experiences within Engage. Take a look:

Below you can find some additional information for each activity. Please note that the number of participants is a guide only.

1. The Dino Beach presentation

Where? In the Start Lessons section

Maximum number of participants? 10

Title: 5 animals that aren't dinosaurs

Notes: This lesson centers on an excellent video presentation from The Sci Show. Find more of their content here.

2. The Titanic Museum

Where? In the Load Location section

Maximum number of participants? n/a

Title: Titanic Gallery

Notes: This one is not an actual lesson inside Engage but rather one of the locations. Look out for the WWI museum too.

3. The Neil deGrasse Tyson Lecture

Where? In the Start Lessons section

Maximum number of participants? 32

Title: Te Inexplicable Universe

Notes: In the video I stay in my seat...I could of course have wandered around on the stage to get a close up during the lecture!

4. The Physics of Ballistics lesson

Where? In the Start Lessons section

Maximum number of participants? 5

Title: Ballistic Trajectory - lesson 1

Notes: Walk straight to the pier to begin the exercise if you have seen the lecture part before. When you are calculating the trajectory, you can round up to the nearest whole numbers.

1. The Curiosity Rover Experience

Maximum number of participants? 10

Title: Mars Curiosity Rover

Notes: After the Rover lands, if you wait for it to deploy fully, you can interact with it and conduct some experiments.
