Abstract

In August 2014, CSIRO and 3P Learning (through subsidiary IntoScience) launched what is probably Australia's biggest (and arguably coolest) school excursion ever. In classrooms around the country, students can now set out to explore the spectacular Jenolan Caves located in the scenic Blue Mountains. Students are immersed, via the web, in an authentic 3D digital recreation of the Jenolan Caves to discover the science behind cave formation.
