Today the education environments, in which training takes place, are various and this aspect has allowed the creation of different learning ways according to the different styles of students' learning. The virtual worlds can be an innovative approach to training experience for science teachers, in order to respond to different styles of students' learning in their classrooms. The virtual worlds are multiuser environments, three dimensional, in which an immersive experience takes place through a simulation of the physical presence online with an avatar, a digital representation of a user. In this type of environment we obtain an immersive learning which represent a learning with a technology in which the user, through a computer screen, feels to live a real experience, of "being" there. Today, the effectiveness of the use of 3D environments for science education is share in the literature as well. These environments have a high degree of immersion and presence. Their features are the elarning by doing and situated learning, so they represent a new strategy to innovate science teaching and to improve motivation and the scientific skills of the students.
