Biosphere VR in the schools

Fox Media Documentaries have over the last few years been involved in creating a role-playing game design for 7 to 9 graders in elementary school – Biosphere VR.

In Biosphere VR the students take the role of NGO, advisor or researcher and are trying to look for answers concerning the changing climate.

The idea is based on the student travelling to the climate hot spots with a quest. 

The student can either travel to Jordan, Kiribati or to Beijing to experience the climate effect on a person that they will get close to. 

In April 2018 we tested the Biosphere VR/ VR journey in China at the Learning Lab at the Tsinghua University in Beijing. The year after at an elementary school – Maglegaards School in Hellerup. The process and test ( Danish with english summary) can be seen HERE

Through a questionnaire answered by over 50 pupils the following results were found:

Increased interest

92% answered that VR made learning STEM subjects more interesting

Increased interest in climate change

85% said the VR experience significantly or to some degree heightened their interest in the effects of climate

Better learning

83 % answered that they remember the teaching better compared with traditional teaching materials

94 % answered that they would like VR to be more significant in their training.
