Kids go on virtual school trips

Imagine being able to visit far away countries from the comfort of your classroom? Well this school in London has been using virtual reality to do just that.

Using VR headsets these guys can visit the pyramids in Egypt, take a swim under the sea, or even take a look at the Earth from space.

It works by using an app on a smartphone and putting it in a cardboard headset.

We sent Martin on a not-so-virtual adventure to find out more about how they are being used...
