HOW TO VR

Teachers and students require access to an iOS device (iPod, iPad, iPhone with iOS 10+). Virtual Reality apps (such as those below) will need to be installed. These VR apps hold a lot of data. One can use a VR headset with the mobile device in VR/Google Cardboard mode OR you can use an iPad (or smaller device) in regular mode.
