George The Farmer Forestry VR
George the Farmer has produced the Forestry VR experience for primary schools and ForestLearning is excited to share this with schools around Australia!
Did you know..? In a tree plantation stage, some forestry workers plant up to 3000 trees and walk up to ten kilometers in a single day! Show your primary students the ‘Seed to Shelter’ forestry video and then follow it up with the 360-degree Virtual Reality (VR) experience available on YouTube (below) or through the ForestVR App for IOS and Android.
