CHARLOTTE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / January 3, 2024 / Discovery Education and Edge at Hudson Yards today announced a new virtual reality experience – Reach for the Sky Virtual Reality (VR) – created for students in grades 4-12. This new VR experience explores one of New York City’s greatest landmarks- Edge at Hudson Yards, the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere – and is a key addition to Discovery Education’s suite of immersive resources. The Reach for the Sky Virtual Reality experience is provided to students and teachers at no cost by Edge’s Reach for the Sky, an educational initiative showing students nationwide the transformative power of STEM.

Premiering January 10, 2024, and available on-demand, the Reach for the Sky Virtual Reality experience is available on a web browser or VR headset. During this one-of-a-kind experience, students can control their journey and interact with their environment as they explore learning hotspots, visit a weather observation station, and take flight with a drone through the New York City skyline.

“At Edge at Hudson Yards, we’re all about connecting people to exciting new experiences,” said Haley Ward, Vice President of Sales at Hudson Yards Experiences. “With this new virtual reality experience, we’ve found an innovative new way for students to not only explore New York City’s skyline but see how STEM powers innovation through some of the most cutting-edge technology available.”

Accompanying educator resources provides teachers with materials and activities to nurture student curiosity. Learn more about the virtual reality experience and the Reach for the Sky resources at reachfortheskynyc.com or in Discovery Education Experience.
