Google Cardboard is a new technology that turns your Android or iOS phone into a virtual reality viewer! Recently, Google visited Canyons School District to demonstrate the beta version of Google Expeditions. Using this app, teachers were able to transport their classrooms to more than 150 locations all over the world, including under the oceans to the Moon and Mars! Although this app is currently unavailable to the public, there are several apps available to recreate this experience.
