Abstract: This research investigates students’ perceived differences between doing activities in hands-on versus virtual environments. Students explored an interactive virtual model of a solar oven and then built and tested a physical solar oven. We found that students often questioned the accuracy of virtual models, yet come to recognize the value of features in the virtual model, including visualizations of energy flow and ability to analyze trends in graphs.
