MissionV is providing a highly creative, totally immersive, game based learning environment for schools and industry. We’re putting the focus on 21st century skills, helping students to become original digital creators with 3D modeling and programming skills.  MissionV allows students to connect, create and collaborate in a 3D world entirely of their own making.

MissionV is currently in beta testing with a select group of schools. Launching publicly in September 2014.

MissionV recently featured in an article and video on Technology.ie which showed the students at St.Kierans Primary School in Co. Offaly building their own virtual reality in MissionV and exploring it using the Oculus Rift. The article was subsequently picked up by the Silicon Valley magazine Engadget.
MissionV is building a platform for a new kind of of game-based learning. That means students can use geometric building tools to collaboratively construct 3D models of real world or fantasy structures (e.g. atoms, museums, physics experiments) and program* those objects to generate a fully interactive world. They communicate and plan their projects via their digital character or avatar making this a truly immersive and engaging learning experience. MissionV has a key role to play in the teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Education & Maths) subjects.
Gaelscoil Eoghan Uí Thuairisc Carlow was the first school on MissionV.  In the school year 2011/2012 we rolled out our virtual worlds project to 20 schools nationwide with the support of the National Centre for Technology in Education. You can read the feedback from the teachers on that programme and the Key Findings from the independent research evaluation carried out by Dr. Conor Galvin at the UCD School of Education and Lifelong Learning.
MissionV also provided a virtual learning environment to the Irish Centre for Talented Youth and DCU Access. As well as a teacher training platform to NUI Maynooth.
* The Scratch programming language is compatible with MissionV so students can apply their existing skills to an exciting new 3D environment.
