In this immersive educational experience, vet Abby Irish describes the external features of a smolt salmon. You will be guided through the features and functions of the fins, lateral line, scales, mouth, eyes and nostrils. You will then view the features of a dissected smolt.
This VR experience is part of a series of VR education experiences around farming salmon. This is 'immersive education' and your students can experience what it is like to visit a salmon farm without leaving the classroom. These VR experiences are part of two Grade 5/6 resources based on the curriculum areas of science and technologies. The two resources you can also access here to find out more about farming salmon: Salmon Science – Growing a Salmon Leaper & Jeepers Creepers Salmon Leapers
The best way for your students to 'experience' this is to watch using FarmVR in 360 vision. To do this:
Step 1 – Install the FarmVR App on your mobile device https://www.farmvr.com.au/download/
Step 2 – Navigate to Aquaculture / Salmon / Dissection
**VR goggles required
