This article discusses the current use of virtual reality tools and their potential in science and engineering education. One programming tool in particular, the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) is presented in light of its applications and possibilities in the development of computer visualization tools for education. VRML can be combined with other software development tools to create interactive dynamic computer graphics to assist in the teaching and understanding of scientific and technological principles. One contribution of this article is to present software tools and provide examples that may encourage educators to develop virtual reality models to enhance teaching in their own discipline
