As a part of The Open University's OpenScience Laboratory, we are developing a 3D simulation of a Geology field trip based around Skiddaw in the Lake District, using the Unity software ( and in collaboration with Daden ( During this session, we will give a demonstration of this 3D virtual geology field trip and discuss our rationale of developing a 3D simulation of a geology field trip. We will discuss the technological challenges of developing this application in Unity 3D. We will outline the opportunities that Unity 3D offers in developing 3D educational environments.
