VR technology and space education for children and young people

VR technology and space education

Virtual reality (VR) has established itself as an important educational tool, especially in the field of space education for children and young people. Through the combination of interactivity and immersion, VR creates unique learning experiences that promote interest in and understanding of space travel.

VR as an interactive learning medium

VR technology makes it possible to present and experience complex concepts of space travel in a simple and fascinating way. For example, students can take a scaled journey through our solar system using a VR application such as "Titans of Space". They experience the scale of the planets and learn about their properties as they virtually travel from one to another.

Promotion of STEM interests

VR promotes interest in science and technology. In programs like "NASA's Eyes", students can interactively explore the Earth, other planets and even spaceships. These types of applications are not only fun, but also help to develop a deep understanding of scientific principles.

Example projects in schools

Some schools are already using VR in their curriculum. For example, there are projects in which students take a virtual trip to the International Space Station (ISS) and complete tasks like an astronaut. These experiences not only impart knowledge about space travel, but also promote teamwork and problem-solving skills.


VR offers enormous potential in space education for children and students. By providing vivid and interactive learning experiences, VR can stimulate curiosity and foster a deep understanding of the complexity and beauty of space. If used carefully and in line with pedagogical principles, this technology can be a valuable asset to education.

The advent of VR technology is opening up new and exciting ways to teach children and students about space travel. Here are some concrete examples of VR applications that focus on space travel:

Examples of VR applications in the space sector


NASA's VR application "Spacewalk"

This application allows students to experience a virtual spacewalk similar to what astronauts do on the International Space Station (ISS). Users can explore the ISS and perform basic tasks, creating a deeper understanding of the challenges of space travel.

"Apollo 11 VR"

This education-centered application takes users on a journey to the moon landing of the Apollo 11 mission. Students can experience the historical events from the astronauts' perspective, from the rocket launch to the moon landing and return to Earth.

"Titans of Space"

A VR tour through our solar system and beyond. This application offers not only visual exploration, but also educational content that helps users understand scale and other aspects of the universe.

"Mars 2030"

This simulation provides a realistic representation of Mars, based on data from NASA. Students can explore the surface of Mars, conduct scientific experiments and learn how astronauts might live and work on Mars.

"Star Chart"

This application allows users to explore the entire solar system in 3D. It offers an interactive map of the night sky that allows you to view stars, planets and galaxies up close.
