Google Expeditions

Google Expeditions VR can take students on hundreds of virtual reality trips without ever leaving the classroom. By simply looking through the viewer, students can swim beneath the ocean with sharks or experience the vastness of outer space.

Google Expeditions is an immersive education app that allows teachers and students to explore the world through over 1000 virtual-reality (VR) and 100 augmented-reality (AR) tours. You can swim with sharks, visit outer space, and more without leaving the classroom.
