The classroom experience has been revolutionized at the Xi'an ITL No 1 Primary School with the introduction of cutting-edge technology on April 9.

Rather than just looking at pictures and videos on a screen, children will now have a more immersive experience with VR (virtual reality) headsets. Students were left completely stunned, mouths agape, by the spectacular virtual world provided by the technology.

Students were also exposed to other remarkable technology during the lesson, such as 3D printers, throwing them into a hi-tech fantasy world that they have never before experienced in a classroom.

Students were encouraged to make their own open-ended creations by using open-source hardware and acousto-optic processing devices in class.

The activity was part of the school's experiment in adjusting their education system to cultivate IT awareness and creativity among students.

The lessons ignite a passion for science and technology in the students and give free rein to their wild imaginations.
