Virtual Reality has the potential to change the trajectory of children’s lives and lead them to careers they never imagined by giving them the chance to see what they can be. By taking on roles as scientists, engineers, historical figures, and more, students can visualize themselves in those scenarios. Killer Snails focuses on science, because we know we need scientists to solve our current and future challenges. BioDive, our first multi-modal VR science product, combines VR and digital journaling to enable students to experience the life of a scientist.  Our next in-development product, GeoForge, builds upon the success of BioDive and focuses more specifically on player collaboration in VR- how we build it, measure it, and improve upon it. This talk will trace how these products were developed, the initial user research for both products, and next steps in this area.
