Abstract

The `constructivism’ pedagogical philosophy states that it is much easier for students to master, remember and innovate new knowledge and ideas whenever they are actively participating in a `learning-by-doing’ situation. Virtual Reality (VR) technology opens a vast window of opportunity to be applied in the field of education. VR can assist the method of study towards matters that regularly require assumption or hypothesis by giving opportunity to the student to immerse in phenomena that cannot be explained visually, auditorily or contact (Fällman, 1998).

This study is based on the problem faced by students and teachers in the conventional science education system for Malaysia’s secondary schools. The primary objective of this research is to study the capabilities of VR as an alternative means to assist in the teaching and learning of Science. The outcome of this research is a ‘Virtual Science Lab’ for Physics and Chemistry. Methodologies used are preliminary study, information gathering, prototype design, prototype development, prototype testing, information analysis and documentation.
