Abstract

The Virtual Reality Education Pathfinder (VREP) is a partnership between government, education, and industry creating an ever‐growing consortium of schools and businesses committed to bringing a new kind of learning and teaching to schools across the country. VREP works by capturing student interest through the use of Virtual Reality and 3D. Students within the program are offered high school and/or college credit for their work and gain valuable 21st Century skills, including study, computer, and technical reading skills, as well as the ability to research, communicate, problem solve, work in teams, collaborate, manage their time, and access resources to accomplish important goals and objectives.
