Virtual reality takes school children on the renewable forestry journey

Virtual reality takes school children on the renewable forestry journey

Teachers from across the country were recently given the opportunity to experience and learn about innovative virtual reality (VR) teaching resources developed by ForestLearning, a program of Forest and Wood Products Australia (FWPA).

The ForestVR™ toolkit for schools will educate students on the renewable cycle of timber in an immersive and engaging way, while overcoming the problems around inaccessibility and safety of visiting physical forests and manufacturing plants.
