This class is too challenging.Teacher: Mr. Evans (Special Ed teacher/bow-tie wearer)Ask your nerd: Are you interested in virtual reality games and experiences? Do you want to learn to code your own unique games that you can play in a virtual environment at home? If your answer is “Yes!” then this class is definitely for you!
We’ll learn the mechanics of virtual reality, how it works, and then we’ll learn to code using a block based coding language called CoBlocks. We’ll work in Co-Spaces, an online software, to learn how to design and build our own unique characters and worlds and program them to interact.
We’ll learn by in-class demonstrations, after class video tutorials, and group work within the software.We’ll also talk about the engineering design process and how to think about continuous improvement in our designs. In addition, we’ll review existing games for VR technology and discuss the designs and programming behind each.
Over the 5 days of this class nerds will :
