Students were able to experience a high-tech virtual reality thanks to the science and engineering department.
Using a special headset and hand controllers, Havering Sixth Form College students were able to immerse themselves in another “world” where they could teleport from place to another and pick up items from a shelf to examine.
The students were able to inspect the projects they had created on a computer and see them in 3D through the virtual reality headsets.
The experience was set up by the college’s Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) technician Curtis Oliver.
He said: “Virtual reality education of this kind is so useful for students because it enabled them to see their work and view their prototypes in real space and then make adjustments if needed.
“This is the latest in technology and it will be used more and more in education in the future.
