An immersive adventure

Schools and arts award

“Together with the school art teacher, Miss Bateman, we took the students on an immersive adventure to Mars! We began by enrolling the students on the Mars One mission, packing virtual suitcases and making space suits out of paper.  On arrival on ‘Mars’, the students worked in teams to build a living environment to help them survive the difficult conditions.  Finally we pressed fast forward and thought about what life might be like after five years on Mars.  Each student recorded a video message to send home to their families on Earth, complete with Martian sound effects.” (Cherry Truluck)
