Sixth Grade, Virtual Reality Science Projects (2 results)

Exploring virtual reality makes for a fun science or engineering project! Making virtual reality (VR) accessible to the public requires lots of different people to work together. Neurobiologists investigate the vision and hearing tricks that make virtual reality possible. Engineers develop virtual reality hardware and software. Animators, video editors, and other technical artists create virtual reality content. You can explore all of these aspects of virtual reality with the resources on this page.

Virtual reality (VR) headsets are becoming increasingly popular with consumers for things like viewing 3D pictures and videos, or for playing video games. However, dedicated gaming headsets like the Oculus Rift® and PlayStation® VR can cost hundreds of dollars. Some headsets, like Google Cardboard™, which is literally made out of folded corrugated cardboard (Figure 1), are much cheaper because they can use any smartphone as the screen. Figure 1.

Are you convinced that virtual reality (VR) will soon become mainstream and improve our lives in unpredicted ways? Or maybe you believe it is a big hype doomed to fade and disappear. In this science project, you will use one aspect of VR—the headset—and investigate if it could convey reality better than traditional pictures or 360° images. You will go out and measure how people perceive pictures and images you took. Will people embrace the VR headset and what it can do or prefer… Read more
