Abstract

Using the VR educational work at the University of Illinois at Chicago with the desktop educational work at Northwestern University, a pilot study involving 6th graders was carried to determine if the children could articulate hypothesis, take measurements, and use the resulting visualizations to explain phenomena in this virtual environment. It was confirmed that the children can be engaged in doing the work, especially during the rather tedious task of data collecteion.
