On March 30, 2016, YHS hosted Google Expedition Trainers. Many of our Junior School and Senior School classes had the opportunity to experience Google’s latest virtual reality technology. Students who participated were able to visit places all over the world without leaving the classroom.
Our teachers had a choice from a list of over 230 expeditions to enhance classroom learning. Expeditions selected included “Biomes”, “Life in the North: Churchill, Manitoba”, “Versailles”, “Life of a Robot”, “Ocean Safari”, “Out of Syria: Back into School” and “Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum”. Here are some of our Grade 3s and a Grade 7 French class trying out the technology.
