Immersive VR Education is proud to announce that our Apollo 11 VR experience has won the Time Warner Future of Storytelling Award.
Competition was extremely tough with 300+ submissions. C.E.O David Whelan was on hand to accept the award at an event held in Snug Harbour New York. In his acceptance speech David emphasised the need for more immersive ways to get students engaged into education and how VR has the ability to not only engage but also emotionally involve students and connect them directly to days in history of difficult to visualize subjects.
