Sunmarke ignites curiosity and creativity with a globally leading programme in Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) from EYFS to Year 13, which uses next generation, immersive technologies to provide an incredible range of learning opportunities to become future ready. Students can travel in space and time, back to prehistoric history or future colonies on Mars; visit planets, foreign countries or museums learning of other people, cultures and environments; visualise the science of how things really work at a molecular level; practise public speaking; and so much more. We are making the impossible, possible.
