Abstract
This project team will develop and test a prototype of SuperChem VR, a game to support high school students' basic chemistry learning. The prototype will include a set of web-based laboratory modules which will be integrated within a virtual reality headset to allow for a 360-degree visual exploration of the environment. The prototype will also include teacher resources for classroom implementation. In the Phase I pilot research with 3 teachers and 54 students, the project team will examine whether the hardware and software prototype functions as planned, whether teachers are able to integrate it within the classroom environment, and whether students are engaged while using the prototype.
