New VR exhibit at Lafayette Science Museum teaches students about coastal protection

LAFAYETTE, La. -

The Lafayette Science Museum is getting money for a new virtual reality (VR) exhibit.

The Mozilla Grant will help pay for Coastal Quest VR, an interactive game that teaches elementary school students about coastal protection. And the Lafayette Science Museum says it's helping in their mission to bring science to children.

"So we are targeting 5th graders and seeing what they can take away from this game using VR as a learning tool and what's really great about it is that we have 5th graders behind us and they are just natural with this, they pick right up on it," said Kevin Krantz, Director of the Lafayette Science Museum.
