Virtual reality in the West Bend-Mallard classroom
WEST BEND — A history lesson or a biology project is taking a different twist this year for West Bend-Mallard School District students.
The school district purchased 30 virtual reality goggles with the capability to attach phones to take a lesson a step further. The total virtual reality package, including software and equipment, cost the school district $9,500. The money was used from Palo Alto County gaming grants.
“It will open up a different avenue of learning,” said West Bend-Mallard School Superintendent Amanda Schmidt. “Kids are so into video games that it will just put them right there in these experiences.”
