Grade 7 students Ethan Heyde (front) and Kolya Lozowchuk admire outer space from within their Google Cardboard virtual reality sets.

This was just one of several virtual field trips the students were able to take when the Google Expedition Pioneer Tour came to Simonds Elementary and U-Connect on March 4.
