“It looks incredible and will further enhance our exciting curriculum. The possibilities will be endless - children will be able to explore places they have never been to in geography lessons, shoot through space in science and travel back in time in history without leaving school! “
“The VR room is amazing. I thought I was in a dream. I really thought I was in a different place completely and I loved that you could be in a distant place and see everything there without having to travel anywhere”.
“Wow! I think the VR room is an incredible resource which will enhance our learning in the curriculum because instead of just imagining things you are learning about, you can actually see them and experience them”.
The design was developed to a futuristic clean white space, with fully integrated colour changing strip lights recessed into Innova’s unique wall cladding system, creating inspiring learning zones around the room.
