Salmon Lifecycle : 4. Smolt to Adult (FarmVR)

Salmon Lifecycle : 4. Smolt to Adult (FarmVR)

In this immersive educational experience, Jonathan from Tassal explains how the smolt are feed, their feeding behaviour and how they manage the feeding system from the feeding vessel. Pens will have different numbers of salmon in them depending on how big the individuals are.

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
Alternatively, for note taking students can also watch VR using an iPad.
