App link: VRidge
This one is for the hackers and geeks out there. It’s quite a bit of effort to get working but it’s great fun if you don’t mind tinkering and experimenting. VRidge lets you connect your gaming PC to your phone and stream SteamVR content from the PC to your phone VR headset.
This won’t match the experience of a proper high end VR system but it will give you a taste of what such systems are capable of and you will learn a lot about how VR works in the process.
Kids love virtual reality! Immersive experiences create powerful memories.
Lots of educational VR apps are available. Here are some good ones.
App link: ExpeditionsPro

This app picks up where the original Google Expeditions left off. It’s a much needed educational addition to the range of phone based VR apps on Android.
The expeditions are collections of 360 degree panoramic images with notes and additional information for education. The most important aspect is that there is multi-user support that allows the guide to manage the experience on a number of phones at the same time over a wifi connection. You can direct the attention of your students to points of interest in the panoramas.
