Creating a realistic 3D science environment for students


The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has teamed up with 3P Learning to create a unique 3D educational world that replicates real life environments that can be closely studied in the classroom.

Students will be able to study in a virtual research lab, completing quests while working through core science lessons. The ability to see real-world locations in high-definition video provides a unique opportunity to show how science truly impacts the environment.

 

"Imagine walking beneath the dense canopy of the Daintree rainforest, understanding the forces holding up the Sydney Harbour Bridge or exploring the life found amongst the elaborate underground structures of the Jenolan Caves," said Jay Guo, CSIRO Researcher Leader Professor, in a statement.

 

I am a fan of seeing these type of efforts, regardless of where they are in the world, because increasing educational ability is a major effort. Most students cannot go and learn out in the field very often, but this should give them an interactive, realistic method to explore the world without actually leaving.
