The Jenolan Caves quest series – aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
Due to 3P Learning’s exciting partnership with the CSIRO, an immersive, curriculum aligned quest series created within the Jenolan Caves has come to life! Computer scientists from CSIRO and science education experts from 3P Learning have used the CSIRO’s latest laser scanning technology, Zebedee, to virtually simulate the caves, allowing students to explore the real-life location from their classroom.
