Recognizing how big of an impact VR/AR can have for students, we decided to create an application in the education field. Field trips are one of features of in-person school lost to the pandemic, so we found a way to bring the field trip to the student through VR.

What it does

By clicking on the different links, a user can travel to and learn about different places.

How we built it

We built this using Spoke by Mozilla and then publishing our scenes to the Hub where up to 24 students would be able to explore a scene together.

Challenges we ran into

It was difficult to get used to how to move around while working on the project, but it certainly became easier as we spent more time using it.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of the potential impact this project could have, especially as it could introduce some students to areas of science/our universe that they would not otherwise get a chance to learn about in an almost hands-on environment.

What we learned

We learned a lot about how to work on projects as a team and that for every problem, there are many ways to approach it and even more way to solve it.

What's next for Celestial (Field Trip Simulator)

We hope to work on creating new environments for people to explore using Celestial.
