Hop Aboard a Virtual Reality School Bus

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL – St. Lucie Public Schools welcomes the arrival of an innovative mobile classroom scheduled to stop by four school sites so students, teachers, and community members can discover how hundreds of K-12 school districts, universities and medical schools are effectively incorporating virtual reality into their lesson plans and curriculum. On Thursday, November 29 and Friday, November 30, the zSpace bus rolls into town with its virtual stations set up and ready for use.


Students and teachers are using zSpace to globally transform education with hundreds of thousands of students using the technology in their classrooms and labs for STEM learning. Students can dissect organs, dive into volcanoes and more – all in a virtual reality world. No headsets are required, just simple 3D glasses so students and teachers can work collaboratively.


zSpace enables fearless learning. Students learn by trying and doing without the fear of breaking materials, spilling chemicals, making a wrong incision or blowing up a circuit – medical students and doctors can even practice surgeries and organ dissections without the messiness of working on real cadavers.
