Find the chart in the lifeboat (a chart is what maps of the sea and coast are called)

  1. What is the name of the navigation tool on top of the chart called? (You’re allowed to Google that if you need to).

  2. The casualty area is down below. How many chairs are there in the casualty area

  3. Using the information point links within the tour, find how to stay safe in and on the water and write down 10 ways you can stay safe and help others if they get into difficulty.

Invent a game where the floor is the sea or a lake and your furniture is safe land. Take turns at being the Lifeboat crew and coastguard taking the emergency call, staying calm while you give advice and come to the rescue.

Find the engine room.

What make are the engines?

Switch to the ‘plan’ view (bottom left icons) and use the measuring tool (ruler icon) to measure the length and width (or ‘beam’ as it’s called on a boat) of the Ivan Ellen.

Use the links to find out more about the unpaid, very brave and selfless men and women who volunteer to save lives at sea and, if you’re able, consider using the ‘donate’ link to help equip and train them to save more lives.

Your location is unique, the people you work with and serve are unique, the challenges we all face however, are very similar. Here are three simple, low-cost ideas to use VR to overcome challenges, increase business and help our global community.

  • "Getting ready to spend time outside - As the weather continues to improve, we’ve seen search behaviour change with consumers readying themselves for spending more time outdoors." (Source -2) As travel and socialising restrictions begin to lift around the world, the tourism and hospitality industry can utilise VR* to maintain interest from existing customers and generate new business with immersive, engaging content. "How quickly can you find the hidden offer code in our VR tour?"

  • "Over 1 in 3 consumers have started using a new brand as a result of the innovative or compassionate way they’ve responded to the pandemic" (Source 1) Our VR tours don't require a headset and can be experienced on any smart device or desktop. For families with young 'active' children and people with hidden disabilities or conditions such as autism, continence or dementia, an interactive Ocean 3D tour allows the end user to familiarise themselves with a new destination. This can be a fun activity that builds desire or, for many, a very welcome facility to plan and reduce anxieties.
