In this immersive salmon hatchery educational experience, Doug Paveley from Tassal explains the technical side of weighing a sample of salmon. The technician collects a sample of Fry, weighs salmon, and after recording the weight, counts the salmon back into the tank. This provides average salmon weight for the tanks.
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/
