Davis students visited places such as Spain and Israel and experienced 360-degree panoramas and 3D images with the virtual reality delivered by Cardboard and a smartphone. As beta testers, the students then gave Google representatives feedback on the product.

“The Google reps, who visit many schools, shared specifically how impressed they were with our students for their respectful behavior and thoughtful insights and with our faculty’s professionalism and creative plans for the Google tool,” Davis Head of School Amy Shafron reported to parents.
