One of my personal passions is Virtual Reality in Education. I believe that virtual reality is the ultimate training and education solution. We as humans learn the best in a 3D Environment. We live in a 3D Enviroment, we touch stuff, we move around and we explore spaces, places and objects. In a 2D environment like a Book or a Television or Computer we are forced to adapt to 2D Learning.
I strongly believe that when you experience something in 3D it is the best way of learning. In ordinary terms practical learning for me is one of the best methods to learn. In High-End Virtual Reality we have the luxury of experience stuff in virtual reality if it is as real as it is in reality.

We Developed a Education Virtual Reality Game
We were commissioned to build a Virtual Reality game for a online education platform in a very short space of time. Their virtual reality developer dropped them and they already booked several Mall events across the country. They approached us last minute to develop the solution for them.
Below is a video from one of the events in the Gateway Mall in Umshlanga KwaZulu Natal. To get some understanding of the virtual reality education game and its success we encourage you to watch the video.
Every Person at the event whom tried the Virtual Reality Education game loved it. It was amazing to see how kids from as young as 6 years old to adults enjoyed the experience. Some people have never heard about Virtual Reality before and have not done the Copper sulfate and Iron science experiment before. In the virtual reality education game they had to do the experiment in Virtual Reality.
Virtual Reality Education is highly effective!
During the tour around the country where we activated the virtual reality experience on behalves of the client everyone loved the experience. When we were in Cape Town at the Africacom exhibition the client invited media to the event to showcase their product and the Virtual Reality Education Game. Here we demonstrated the experience to children of all ages and gave them the opportunity to try it for themselves in Virtual Reality.
The results were amazing. As part of the activation we setup some real equipment and after completing the experience asked the kids to try it our for themselves in real life. In all cases all the kids could complete the Science Experiment in Real Life without any guidance!
This again showed me how powerful Virtual Reality is when you use it for training and education purposes. For more information on the event go to Africacom – Virtual Reality in Education.

Some of the science tools that students can use in this experiment.
The Virtual Reality Science Education game was a big success. Students and parents loved the game and it was a great way of introducing the future of education to students.
We are busy developing a Virtual Reality Educational Solution for Students and Educators. For inquiries you can contact Gerald Ferreira on 072 234 7513.
