REM5 Virtual Reality Laboratory hosted Beacon Academy last week and we overheard multiple students say it was the best field trip they've ever been on. We're biased, but we think so too.
As much as field trips might be fun, there's a lot of learning going on too. Here's what you need to know about field trips to REM5, but first a look at 40 kids who are excited to learn about VR.
Field trips are fun and easy at REM5. We'll handle the technology and teach kids how to use VR. All you have to do is set up a time and arrange the bus. Here are details if you're interested in a field trip to REM5:
