How would you like to enable teachers and health care providers across the country to take people to outer space or to the rainforest? Can you create tools and interactivity through code? If so, we want YOU!
There’s been lots & lots of work behind the scenes at 4D HQ over the last few months. Our software development team have been busy creating, developing, testing, trying out new things, testing again & again until we reached a final result that we’re really happy with.
The spaces we install allow schools to go to new worlds, expand learning through immersive experiences and support all aspects of the curriculum in a customisable way.
But the 4th dimension of 4D are the people who use the spaces long after we’ve packed up our toolboxes. It’s the people who make the spaces come alive using the tools we’ve given them of lights, sounds, projections and easy to use software.
Can you believe it? Liverpool FC is 125 years old today!
To celebrate 125 years of the club, they visited Four Oaks Primary School in Anfield to get some help from their pupils. Students from Year 6 at Four Oaks were asked to recreate the beginnings of the club through drama with the help of a local historian.
Using their immersive space, they portrayed the whole story, moustaches and all.
We believe that storytelling is a fundamental part of learning.
Stories themselves are one of the first immersive experiences anyone can have. A 4D room simply allows users to take people on a journey using technology, whether it be to space or to your own back garden. By adding images, sounds and lights and a touch of magic – you can transport people into their very own stories. Continue reading “Storytelling”
Want to work for a company that transforms ordinary classrooms from the deepest ocean to the far flung reaches of outer space; all at the touch of a button? Do you want to inspire teachers to revolutionise teaching and learning using cutting edge technology? Do you have a background in the creative arts or education sectors?
We’re looking for someone special…hopefully it’s you!
The World Museum in Liverpool is playing host to the Cosmic Classroom live event and we’re over the moon to announce space medicine scientist and TV personality, Dr Kevin Fong, as our expert presenter.
There will be 11 classes from schools around the country in the audience at the museum, who will be watching and taking part just like the pupils in your class.
Tim Peake will also be answering questions posed by schools via the video messages they sent to us earlier this month!
This is the perfect opportunity to integrate your immersive space in with your pupil’s learning in a really experiential way.
Why not take your class inside a rocket and experience a ROCKET LAUNCH with sound effects and visuals
Show them Space as they fly through the atmosphere and approach the International Space Station… where they can eventually meet British astronaut, Tim Peake as he answers questions from school children all over the country.
Cosmic Classroom is taking place HERE on 2 February at 2pm GMT. Bring space to life for your students with a LIVE broadcast with British ESA astronaut Tim Peake!
BLAST OFF live with the International Space Station at 2pm GMT on Tuesday 2 February.
Find out more information about the timings and structure of the broadcast in our blog post
Check our this up to date timeline of all our immersive spaces in UK…with more spaces being created every month, plus more Pop Ups currently being manufactured, we’re reaching 100 immersive environments nationwide. People are unlocking the potential of immersive learning experiences and providing rich care environments with the aid of their customisable content library and bespoke 4D software all over the country!
Are you a daydreamer, doodler or designer? Do you have an amazing and creative imagination?
4D is getting a new look and we’re looking for someone who can design us a new logo. So we thought, who better to ask to design it than the people who use our spaces – YOU! We’re looking for a design that represents how your immersive space makes you feel and think! What we need the design to do:
Be original, interesting imaginative and creative
To include ‘4D’ somewhere
To sum up what you think a 4D room does
Be simple and to the point
Be easily transferrable onto computer – you may want to design it on the computer yourselves (in which case send us a file format such as jpg, bmp, png) or you may want to draw it with pen and paper – as long as it can be scanned in, we can use it!
Teachers you may want to set this as a piece of work for your class – why not step into your immersive space to set the challenge.
Once you’re happy send us your logo design to: firstname.lastname@example.org (and include your name, age and the name of your school) by 12th February 2016
There’s a prize for the best design – so, what are you waiting for?! We’re already looking forward to seeing what you come up with…
