Virtual REALity

"A field trip without the bus"

The Fitchburg Public Schools are proud to bring a VR Kit to each of our schools! These VR kits allow groups of 5 students to travel anywhere in the world, in both the Google Expeditions app as well as watching full motion 360 videos using the YouTube app

The phones and tablet are locked down using the Kids Place launcher to ensure that only the Google Expeditions and YouTube apps are used
