The most exciting prospect for us is taking Virtual Reality as we know it; a very single user experience, and pushing that interaction with others that is otherwise impossible.
We know we are just scratching the surface of what is possible and cannot wait to see where this venture takes us.
Interactive Immersive Classroom is founded in a collaboration between Production Park and Enquire Learning Trust. It is supported through Research at Backstage Academy as part of a new business incubator.
In 2016, a class of Backstage Academy students was asked to conduct a feasibility study that would later become the foundation of the company. They were tasked with converting a regular teaching space into an immersive classroom that would educate kids in ways not possible before.
In May 2017, the students installed the first Immersive Classroom at Linden Primary Academy, Denton. The project was a huge success and prompted the formation of our relationship with the Enquire Learning Trust.
Realizing the potential behind the project, Production Park launched a new company to manage this. In June 2018, Interactive Immersive Classroom was incorporated.
Now, we have installed in 3 primary schools, and are in talks about the next few. Since launching the rooms publicly, we have seen interest from many people and been featured on BBC Look North.
