In current curriculum, the limitation of location, season, and appearance of insects eliminate students to observe the insects closely. The students usually are confused with insects’ appearance and growing process. Virtual reality remove the limitation of time and space and facilitate students to learn and explore more actively. The head-mounted devices provides a more immersive environment for students to enhance their learning motivation. Studies found appropriate pedagogy should be integrated into virtual reality. Inquiry-based learning emphasize students’ exploration and could be parallel with virtual reality in exploring. In this study, inquiry-based learning model and head-mounted virtual reality was combined to improve insect education, and further compared their attitude and learning experiences.
