Google Expedition program visits Mt. Vernon High School


A representative from Google visited Mt. Vernon High School last month with a new technology experience that took students from 16 classes on a trip around the world.

The Google Expedition Pioneer Program took students on virtual reality field trips using one tablet and a collection of smart phones and cardboard viewers. The smart phones were placed into the cardboard viewfinders, which depicted 360-degree photo spheres, 3D images and 3D video complete with ambient sounds.

The teacher can control the images and video from their tablet while sharing notes and details on the destination with the class.

Through their Google Expedition virtual reality field trips, MVHS students were able to visit Rio de Janeiro, Aztec and Mayan ruins and U.S. monuments, among other destinations.
