Virtual reality creates artificial environments and experiences using software and hardware to generate sights and sounds that feel almost real. Virtual reality coding is as fun and exciting for games as it is for businesses and education, so how do you bring the real world to the virtual world? In We are VR you will learn the fundamentals of using visual coding to create virtual reality experiences that are fun and photorealistic so you can share with your family and friends with a VR headset, a tablet or a laptop. Then you’ll take those skills and build your own virtual reality games with 4 templates for you to explore.
You will begin the week by learning how to manipulate and create 3D images and assets using Keiosk.com and Cospaces.edu. As the week goes on you will be spend the day with fun activities designed to hone your coding and artistic skillsets, so after 5 days you’ll have built a VR experience from scratch and will have a year long subscription to our platform, Keiosk.com and our training partner Cospaces.edu.
You’ll be able to play games, experience and exhibitions designed by students just like you and share them.
Each of these activities are taught by three experienced Technology and Engineering education professionals. Activities are STEM-based and focus on using engineering design and real-world problem-solving skills to solve problems.
