    Pros: 

    - I'm a big fan of practical learning and Kosmos is about giving kids a fun and "real" way to do that.

    - A real teacher leads the course.

    Cons: 

    - VR is relatively new and the frictions around it make it difficult for me to stay focused for a longer period (for now).

    I definitely believe in the vision of a school in the VR and I will closely be following the progress of both, VR and Kosmos School. Way to go!

Hey there 👾 Excited to share Kosmos School with PH today. We're building the first K-12 school that exists only in virtual reality. Our first class is called Rocket Escape (https://kosmosschool.com/project...), and students (in a team of 5) together with a teacher meet in VR with the goal to build a rocket. Kosmos is a project-based school, therefore students need to solve a problem collaboratively and learn important skills such as critical thinking and teamwork. Rocket Escape is premiering in November and the first class is already fully booked out. There are open spaces in our January classes, though :-) We're also raising $6k on Kickstarter, so head over there and check out our fun rewards if you want to support us: https://www.kickstarter.com/proj... If you have kids aged 13-16 or friends with kids, we're happy to offer a 70% discount on our first class ($30 instead of $100). Just use this form to enroll: https://kosmosschool.typeform.co... Cheers

As much as this sounds like a good idea, the problem is that children's eyes have not finished developing, so prolonged use could cause myopia (near sightedness). Meaning, to prevent it would have to be classes that were less than an hour total.

@delwilliams To my knowledge, there are not any scientifically proven health issues with VR and children. Having said that, our classes don't take longer than 1 hour and of course, it's our highest priority that it's safe to go to Kosmos School.
