Welcome to Teaching Physics Using Virtual Reality

Craig Savage

Teaching Physics Using Virtual Reality is an investigation of game-like simulations for science teaching.

Our first project is Real Time Relativity - a 3D virtual world obeying Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity. We have developed a teaching package for use in first year university physics classes.

We will also develop at least one more simulation for use in university science teaching.

We welcome collaborators. Please contact us to discuss how you can get involved with the project.

The project is funded by The Australian Learning and Teaching Council for 2008-2009. The investigators are Craig Savage at the Australian National University, and Margaret Wegner and Tim McIntyre at the University of Queensland.
