SpaceBuzz: VR Education Programme for Children to create Ambassadors of planet Earth
Issue 56 | September 2020
BackgroundSpaceBuzz is the world’s first real life VR-enabled education program that teaches children about Space, Earth and STEM. A real-life rocket vehicle comes to schools to launch entire classrooms into orbit to experience the astronauts view/perspective on planet Earth, the so called Overview Effect. The spaceflight is a real-time VR experience commanded by European astronaut André Kuipers. This key experience combined with their education program aims to turn children worldwide into ‘ambassadors of planet Earth’. SpaceBuzz is also a scientific pilot into the effectiveness of VR for learning.
