I've updated my Expeditions Kit list of materials if you want to save a few thousand off the Best Buy kit. Most parts are the same as in the kit, I've found a good reasonably priced phone on Amazon that works well- Moto G Play 4th ed. Using this list you can create kits that match your class sizes. I found the Best Buy kits weren't practical - we have ~25 in elementary classes and 33+ in middle school. So I made a kit of 35 devices. If you go with the phone version that has an ad in the start up - the full cost for 35 is $4655, if the ad is not appropriate, pay a little more and the kit is $6440 - almost half of the cost of the Best Buy kit. You do have to spend a few hours setting up the devices - but for $4-5,000 savings , I don't mind. Feel free to comment on the doc if you have other recommendations or thoughts.

Just did our 1st VR trip with our own equipment - worked liked a charm - super easy, no tech glitches (I've probably just jinxed me for life). Now I've got a line of teachers looking for it at the school! All of the work paid off in 30 min.
