Remember Breaking Boundaries in Science, our free Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR game highlighting the lives and achievements of influential women scientists like Jane Goodall, Marie Curie, and Grace Hopper? 🤔

In the months since we launched Breaking Boundaries, we’ve received an outpouring of kindness and support from players and fans across the world. From teachers to students, librarians to XR enthusiasts, hardcore gamers to first-time VR users, we’re hearing your love for Breaking Boundaries loud and clear. From the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to extend a huge ‘THANK YOU!’ to everyone who’s played our game.

And what better way to say thanks to our loyal followers and supporters than to give you something you’ve been requesting since launch day – our official Breaking Boundaries in Science curriculum materials!

The all-new set of free lesson plans, activities, and resources were made by educators, for educators to extend the learning experience of Breaking Boundaries in Science. Special thanks to the specialists at Northern Illinois University who made these lessons plans possible!
