Virtual reality represents a new direction in technological advancements for educational research. While education has been slow to adopt new technology, educational technology companies have been slow to collaborate with teachers to produce pedagogically valuable resources. This project explores house science educators and science researchers collaborate to produce virtual reality instructional materials for the modern science students. What this means Is that educators can think critically about how technology can become a useful tool for building culturally relevant virtual reality instructional materials. At the 2019 conference for the National Association of researchers of science teaching, we presented a number of new research studies. The studies are here for you to review and share broadly.
