By introducing virtual reality into our classrooms, geography will be transported from a two dimensional world to a three dimensional experience that will make the fascinating history of the world come alive and engage students in the diverse world around them. Virtual learning creates a fun experience for students to learn about the physical world around them ranging from biomes and climate regions to experiencing places they have never seen before.

The "Museum in a Box" project brings the museum directly into the classroom and to the students themselves. These boxes include a collection of artifacts including but not limited to period art pieces, postcards, maps, documents, textiles- anything that the observer can pick up and touch. Instructors will have the opportunity to incorporate the experience into lessons with the learner driving the lesson with hands on materials.
