In the VELscience project, a series of six modules that immerse middle school students in virtual environments for learning (VELs), are being developed. Students take on the role of a scientist engaged in a complex task. The virtual settings presented in the VELs support students in designing and carrying out their own investigations. Students use virtual scientific instruments that resemble those used by scientists in the real world, but scaled to suit their age level.
