Virtual Reality, most commonly referred to as VR, is making waves in education and healthcare. But what is it? VR is a form of technology that allows users to become fully immersed in their surroundings. Imagine being transported to anywhere in the world without having to jump on a plane. Have you ever dreamed of walking along the Great Wall of China or visiting the Galapagos Islands?
We know that experiencing something first-hand can’t be beaten. But we also know that this is not always feasible. Using Google Expeditions, PrimeVR is bringing virtual worlds to the education and healthcare sector. Imagine starting a topic on Ancient Rome by taking your class to see the Colosseum. Imagine giving a terminally ill patient the opportunity to cross off one of the items on their bucket list. We aim to make VR accessible in education and healthcare with our affordable experience days, VR kits and tailored learning subscriptions.Learn More
PrimeVR was started by two tech enthusiasts, Stuart and Tom. Stuart is a qualified teacher and former Google Expeditions associate. Whilst working on the UK Pioneer Programme, he visited over 100 schools and travelled nearly 10,000 miles across the UK. He witnessed the awe and wonder that virtual reality created in the classroom; from remote locations in Cornwall to the busy city of London, the “WOW’ reaction was the same. Tom is an expert in all things IT; he built his first computer at the age of 10 and has been running his own digital agency for over five years. Together, Stuart and Tom started PrimeVR to make virtual reality more accessible across the education and healthcare sector in the UK.
