About This Game
In this virtual reality adventure, you'll explore the inner workings of a canola plant from root to flower. What does canola need to thrive optimally? Learn about the processes in plant cells, playfully help it grow, and become an excellent plant scientist.
LEARNING CAN TAKE PLACE ANYWHERE AND AT ANY TIME
Together with plant researchers:inside the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research, Breakpoint One and Simmation have created a high-quality educational experience. VR Plant Journey "Die Reise in die Pflanze" teaches children biological knowledge in a playful way. Thanks to fully immersive virtual reality (VR), players:inside are completely immersed in the inner workings of a canola plant, experience the events up close and can even control them.
EDUTAINMENT MEANS ENTERTAINING LEARNING
In three chapters - root, leaf and seed - you test out how an optimum of nutrients must be regulated for the development of plant organs.
The unusual learning unit is lightened up by playful elements.
In the leaf, for example, chloroplasts are thrown with the basic substances of photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and water; in the root, ammonium and nitrate, important plant nutrients, have to be assembled; and in the seed, oil bodies have to be hit with a bow and arrow so that they grow.
The high-quality implementation of the concept is reflected in several internationally renowned award nominations: 2019 for the VRnow Award "Best Learning Solution", 2020 for the Auggie Award "Biggest Societal Impact" and 2020 for the Laval Virtual Award in the category: "VR/AR for Learning and Training".
