The pandemic has created many challenges for education. Despite many schools now having already returned to instruction in-person as opposed to the challenge of doing so virtually, many have adapted to the new normal of having hybrid modes of instruction. With the trend Meta is trying to put through of the Metaverse, we will certainly see hybrid modes with more interactive methods further explored for best teaching virtually or in-person. One of these methods is through VR/AR technology. This presentation will discuss how custom VR/AR applications can be used for education; particularly on how to design a curriculum which incorporates pre-selected research areas that can be made by teachers through educational software to be visualized in VR/AR in order for students to directly experience the areas and how students can also be directed to model these areas as part of their learning. It is easier to gain knowledge and experience from a project if they get first-hand, hands-on exposure towards it as such. How this and leveraging available resources for learning for common subjects such as Chemistry from seeing 3D visualizations of molecules can create an interactive classroom, whether it be in-person or virtual, would be engaging to students will be discussed. As part of this, I will also include a case study as to how I can create a custom VR application based on a research area that students currently researching the area need and how it can become a core part of the course's curriculum.
