ABSTRACT
This paper reports the findings of a study designed to develop three-dimensional virtual reality technology (VRT) learning programs for middle school students, and to evaluate the programs' educational value. The topic covered by the simulation was 'structure and function of the eye'. The study concludes that VRT simulations allow comfortable interaction with computers and increase the interest of students and their understanding of scientific concepts and phenomena.
