A Virtual History Lesson

About VietVR

VietVR is a first of-its-kind educational experience that immerses students in the history of the Vietnam and Cold War, and uses a multi-modal approach that utilizes interactive timelines, holographic interviews, and a narrative story to help students learn. Balancing the line between education and entertainment, the experiences have been aligned with curriculum objectives of AP US History, AP World History, and AP US Government in mind.

We are excited for the future that education through immersive technology promises, and hope the stories resonate with you and your students as much as they have with us.
