STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE LIFE AS WW1 SOLDIERS

6th November 2018

Students from City of Wolverhampton College will be going in back in time and getting a taste of the horrors of war in an innovative virtual reality experience.

The group of learners, who are studying for diplomas in uniformed public services, will don virtual reality headsets and become soldiers living in army barracks and fighting in the trenches – complete with bullets flying, bombs dropping and bi-planes soaring overhead – before going ‘over the top’ into No Man’s Land.

The experience has been designed by Tamworth-based digital innovation company Dev Clever to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Dev Clever CEO Chris Jeffries said: “We have developed the 360-degree virtual reality experience so that young people can see what soldiers, many not much older than themselves, went through 100 years ago to give them the choices they have today.”
