Student, Sage Decimo said, “VR’s are my favorite because we get to see different places around the world and that was fun.”
Their enthusiasm for the lessons was shared. Ellison Baer chimed in, “They are really cool, but I wish we could walk around those places.”
Principal Lisa Campos, reminded them, “This was an opportunity for you to see those places because otherwise, you wouldn’t have been able to visit those places that are so so far away. So the reasoning for me writing this grant was for you guys to have those experiences that you wouldn’t have been able to have otherwise, right.”
The grant has not only benefitted Oak Meadow’s GT classes but also other GT classes within the Churchill cluster of schools. They take field trips to Oak Meadow and experience the VR lessons, as well as the planetarium, which was a prior year’s NEEF grant.
