British Science Week


Science is a wonderful field of study that has greatly impacted our lives in numerous ways. From medicine and technology to agriculture and transportation, science has helped to improve our quality of life and expand our understanding of the world around us.

The pursuit of scientific knowledge has been a fundamental human endeavour for centuries, and it continues to be so today. In this blog post, we will celebrate the wonders of science and explore some of the reasons why science is so important to our society.

Why Learn about Science

First and foremost, science helps us to understand the natural world. Through scientific inquiry and experimentation, we are able to discover the underlying principles and laws that govern the universe. This knowledge allows us to develop technologies that can help us to solve problems and improve our lives.

For example, our understanding of genetics has allowed us to develop new medical treatments and therapies that can help to cure diseases and improve the quality of life for patients. Similarly, our knowledge of physics and engineering has enabled us to create faster and more efficient transportation systems, as well as new forms of renewable energy.

Science also plays a crucial role in our ability to make informed decisions. By providing us with evidence-based information, science helps us to evaluate different options and choose the best course of action. This is especially important in fields such as public health, where scientific research can help to guide policy decisions and prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

ClassVR and Science 

ClassVR offers learners the opportunity to explore, discover and learn about scientific concepts in a more inspirational way. Exploring immersive VR resources from 3D models, 360 photos and videos, as well as explorable scenes, learner engagement is increased, a greater emotional response can be achieved, and a deeper understanding of ideas can be achieved, with greater retention.

ClassVR allows learners to hold 3D DNA, atoms, animals and much more on the palm of their hands. Explorable scenes take learners to a whole new environment where they can experience different scientific processes happen around them, such as circulatory system, the respiratory system, forces in action, photosynthesis, and so much more.

Social and Cultural Impact of Science 

Furthermore, science is a constantly evolving field, with new discoveries and breakthroughs happening all the time. This means that there is always more to learn and discover, which makes science an exciting and dynamic field to be a part of. Scientists are always pushing the boundaries of knowledge and exploring new frontiers, which helps to expand our understanding of the world around us.

In addition, science has a social and cultural impact as well. It inspires creativity and innovation, and it has played a key role in shaping our cultural beliefs and values. From the earliest civilizations to modern times, science has been at the forefront of human progress, and it continues to be a driving force for positive change.


ClassVR has recently had a big push and released many new explorable scenes focusing on scientific experimentation. The foundation of science is evidence based, and concepts built from them. Science is a truly amazing field of study that has contributed greatly to our society in countless ways, one that can be enhanced and made even more exceptional by using ClassVR.
