Step into a new dimension by creating your own virtual reality! In this camp, students will go through an entire design process the includes sketching, designing, coding, and experiential learning. Every character will be programmed to move, fly, jump, whatever you can imagine! Students will code their own interactive stories, escape rooms, and mazes. They will then experience their games in virtual reality using take-home headsets.
-Use an intuitive toolbox to create their own 3D characters, buildings, and scenes
-Experiment with 3D modeling
-Develop spatial skills
-Experience their worlds using 360 degree virtual environments
-Create various scenes that will be shared with fellow campers
-Showcase their final projects to the rest of the class
We've all heard of virtual reality, but creating and coding it in person is an entirely different experience! After students have completed their realities, they will be able to use our smart phones (or their own if they have access to one) to download an app and try it with a take-home cardboard VR headset. We love this camp because discovering and exploring 3D creations in VR can add value to any learning experience. Seeing things come to life is a a major motivation factor, as it enables students to get immersed in their creations.
Additionally, we are excited to be incorporating Augmented Reality (AR) software into this camp so students can design and program the world around them to come to life using the cameras on smartphones and tablets!
Students will work individually on a laptop. We are able to provide laptops for all students. However, students are encouraged to bring their own laptop if they have one. This will allow them to more easily continue their learning after camp. We will help install proper software, which will allow campers to continue working on their projects once camp has ended.
Please pack your child a re-usable water bottle, 2-3 snacks to enjoy during snack break, and a bag lunch. Also, be sure to dress them in comfy shoes as we will be playing some games outside!
Optional extended care (AM & PM) is available with additional purchase at check out.
