Parallax seeks to be a learning experience that combines traditional teaching methods with virtual reality supplements to enhance student understanding of traditionally taught astronomy concepts. Lecture order and content is based upon the California Department of Education’s standards for 8th graders’ knowledge of astronomy. Lectures are followed by virtual reality sessions which aim to grant students additional insights on various topics related to astronomy by taking advantage of virtual reality’s inherent interactivity and its capability to convey perspective.
