Virtual reality headsets and apps are designed for entertaining but are being used more for education.
Virtual reality allows the user to be immersed into a virtual world, unlike regular screens in front of the user which don't allow such an experience. A virtual reality headset shows you an image, often with three-dimensional technology, and as soon as you move your head, it modifies the image. This is what gives students the feeling of really being present in the virtual world.
While advanced VR systems can cost hundreds of dollars, there are a few systems out there on the market that are much cheaper, making this hands-on experience obtainable for all students. The Google Cardboard for instance, is the most advanced and inexpensive VR system available, and most VR apps are compatible with it. This VR system along with others have created specialized virtual reality systems for the education market that assist children with the STEM task in this hands-on world.
