Shin Asaw Sea and Life VR Experience
Sea and Life VR Experience is Iron Design Award winner in 2019 - 2020 Education, Teaching Aid and Training Content Design Award Category.
Sea and Life VR Experience

This is an immersive edutainment. The first part, "Movie Side," explains marine environmental issues. Children can learn while being impressed by the images on the dome screen or HMD. Next, children challenge the second part, the "game side". Kids will review their knowledge using four optional quizzes while enjoying an underwater experience and hunting for creatures. At this time, kids want to improve the score, so they want to watch the first part many times. Also, the production of VR takes great care to ensure that children with growing vision can enjoy it safely.
