New Virtual Reality Programme!

Projects and programmes

Notice reference #: 1H9oSx

The Sir Peter Blake Trust, in partnership with New Zealand Geographic, is excited to announce our newest experiential learning programme for students - NZ-VR, our newest outreach programme which we hope will connect thousands of young Kiwis with the marine environment, launching into schools in 2019.

Using virtual reality, students will experience the rich biodiversity that exists below the surface of the Hauraki Gulf and connected open spaces, as well as the damage that's been done to the ecosystem. They'll come away with actions they can take to protect the environment and gain a much deeper sense of kaitiakitanga.

Auckland schools can register for our travelling educator to come to their school, while the rest of the country can access the virtual reality videos on their own devices supplemented by our teaching resources and lesson plans.
